Description

The Tampa Tribune found that it's legal to put potentially hazardous substances in Hillsborough County's landfill. The substances, listed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as potentially toxic, include 500,000 pounds of lead from thousands of melted-down car batteries and 6.6 million pounds of a diluted ammonium nitrate solution. Critics worry what is now in the landfill may soon be in Tampa's drinking water. (May 12, 1995)
