Close it back up and forget about it...
Don't mention it to anyone and sell the house as fast as you can....

Your house is on an old toxic waste dump....

You aren't in the area between Watkins Lake and the Airport are you?
Thats where they dumped the really bad stuff...

I'm just joking here but If I was you I sure would want to know what this is...

Didnt this come up when you bought the home? I know you said you just found it so maybe you did not see it when looking at the house but I am surprised the previous owners did not disclose this...did you sign an arbitration form? You could take them to court. I am surprised your inspector did not mention this either. I know it is somthing you are leaving well alone but I am worried this may eventually make you sick or if you go to sell you will have to disclose it and fix it anyways.....arbitration may get them to pay for it?
