Description

The Florida Times-Union reports that "... Neighborhoods that now house thousands of people were previously dumping grounds for hazardous wastes that remain today in the soil and water at schools, subdivisions and parks." Additionally, the newspaper learned the city ignored warnings about potential health hazards, dragged its feet on cleaning the sites and donated property on the polluted grounds to the Habitat for Humanity.
