Description

Streater's Star-Telegram article explains the contamination of soil in the surrounding areas of the Forth Worth Federal Center. The Center used to be an old Army supply depot, and stored, for over sixty years, lead, magneses ore, and additional raw materials. After looking over 5000 pages of Federal, state, and city records, the Star-Telegram uncovers a few hidden facts. The soil of a nearby preschool and playground are both contaminated. Environmental consultants warned that humans should not be in contact with contaminated areas. There is speculation of drums of buried chemical waste, including Agent Orange (circa Vietnam) somewhere in the area.
