The experimental is possible because of a manufacturing process that has sharply divided local environmental- ist groups. The pond is filled with groundwater that has been pumped through pipes to cool newly manufactured laminating according to John senior vice preisdent at Nevamar. By the time is empties into the the water sometimes is as hot as 108 degrees. It cools up to 20 degrees in the pond. The firm has come under attack from Save Our Streams for discharging hot water into Picture Spring a stream that begins at the pond and feeds into the Severn River. The group claims the hot water and metals in the discharge have virtually destroyed aquatic life in the tiny stream. Since Save Our Streams has fought Nevamar's efforts to renew its discharge permit with the state Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. The permit is being withheld pending further appeals.
