New Public Health Failure at Love Canal Decades after EPA Remediation

13 Jan

After 35 years, a new generation of Love Canal residents claims illnesses from buried chemicals

Current residents of the redeveloped Love Canal neighborhood say that capping, an impermeable layer and clean topsoil failed to protect their families from toxic exposure and resulting catastrophic illnesses, prompting a new lawsuit against Occidental Chemical, its remediation contractors, the City of Niagara Falls, and the Niagara Falls Water Board:

      We’re sorry that your health has been harmed by the contamination. Residents of Carol Estates and all of the neighborhoods surrounding Cabot/Koppers suffer from the same superfund issues as Stephen Foster. Stephen Foster residents regularly attend City and County commission meetings to speak out publicly about their illnesses, toxic homes, and lost loved ones, so they are more visible. Gainesville Commission meetings are held every other Thursday (call 334-5015 for details). Alachua County Commission meetings are held every other Tuesday (call 374-3636 for details).
