Peter Van Wyck, a Massachusetts real estate broker, purchased the former militar
Peter Van Wyck, a Massachusetts real estate broker, purchased the former military fuel dump at Thompson's Point in Portland in 1984 with two partners. Van Wyck allowed Rocco DiSanto Sr. to store bales of polyester propylene fiber trimmings from Gates Formed-Fibre Products of Auburn at Thompson's Point, but was later informed by the Maine Department of Environmental Protection that the fiber would have to be moved to a special type of landfill. Van Wyck sued DiSanto and Gates to have the 4,000 tons of fiber removed from his property, but the case was dismissed. Gates paid DiSanto to dispose of the fiber, and said it is not responsible for either the Portland pile or another in Auburn. Details.
