Description

For years a small group of neighbors in Sugar Creek, Missouri had worried, then complained about pollution from the of Amoco Oil Refinery. The State Department of Natural Resources and the EPA told them everything was being handled. Some of the town citizens who lived near the old refinery were coming down with devastating illnesses. KSHB-TV wen door to door calling relatives, checking death records and checking the history of pollution in the area. The investigation found waste oil still seeping out of the ground.
