Love Canal became the subject of national and international attention after it was revealed in the press that the site had formerly been used to bury 22,000 tons of toxic waste by Hooker Chemical Company (now Occidental Petroleum Corporation).

The city of Niagara Falls began using the land as a landfill for chemical waste disposal and later the U.S. Army began burying waste from chemical warfare experiments. The Hooker Chemical and Plastics Corporation acquired the use of the site for private use in 1947 and buried 21,000 tons of toxic waste there over the next five years. After the site was filled, Hooker sold the Love Canal for one dollar to the Niagara Falls School Board in 1953, and the land was approved for residential use.

“Thirty-five years after Love Canal became a symbol of the dangers of toxic waste in residential neighborhoods, the legal and medical issues there are still playing out.”

Did the EPA learn NOTHING from The Love Canal tragedy? Did they “forget”? Or, are they just sellouts of humanity that don’t care as long as it doesn’t affect their families, while being paid off to turn a blind eye? These are questions that should be PUBLICLY ASKED of the EPA regarding their complicity in allowing land developers, (consisting of attorneys who know how to skirt the law), to build a residential community on a similar toxic waste site in Riverview, Florida.

Please help show support for the brave Gina LaBruno, and all of the residents suffering ill effects from the toxic water in Riverview, by liking her facebook page, sharing information, and speaking out. The EPA and other public officials must be held accountable for turning a blind eye to this atrocity. https://www.facebook.com/wateratVOB

What might it take for city officials to acknowledge this serious problem? How about a nice big drink of water from the faucet of one of the homes in Riverview?…

How about it, EPA, care for a sip?

Notice the chemical residue stains in the bottom of that jar:

Along with the Riverview Gypsum Stack that has been leaking on and off for how long now!! The FDEP and EPA have left the Florida Environment and the Florida Citizens to face harmful health challenges that they cannot overcome!! These agencies have been given SOLID PROOF that there is something terrible occurring and yet they just DENIED it turned the other cheek and left us to die. Get the FEDERAL part of our government that comes from outside of REGION 4 here to do testing I guarantee they will find out just how serious this Fall Out TRULY IS!!

    I just noticed that the first article in the six part series entitled “Coming Clean” is missing from the series. I don’t know why. It’s still a sickening story all the same. The slideshow tells it ALL.

    Here in Nikiski, Alaska I was involved in a similar fight three years ago. An out of state company, AIMM Technologies applied for a permit to build a drilling waste Monofill very near my public water well. While investigating the proposed dumpsite I uncovered the unknown, disturbing history of the surrounding property. I is clear to me that this site was chosen because future contamination could be blamed on past indiscretions. After spending several thousand dollars and hundreds of hours investigating and informing my community. I gave up due to lack of community support.
    The Monofill was ultimately approved by the Alaska DEC and the DOL in an act of willful blindness. Seeing the criminal activity within The Alaska Department of Conservation and the Department of Law was my snooze alarm before my wake up call to the insanity of Geoengineering.
    This Story was covered quite well by our local newspaper. I have included a link to the story below. If you do read the story, it’s a six part series so start at the bottom and watch the short DEC file video. Please understand that NONE of the toxic material seen in the video at The Arness Septage was ever removed. Only the underground tanks were removed, their contents remains. Also, my investigation turned up dozens of other dump sites in the area, all of them were swept under the rug by the criminal government. All of it still remains today and will continue to leach into the aquifer forever.
    Thank you, Gina and Rebel for all that you do.

    I want to Thank you Rebel and the team of people you work with! I am so appreciative for your efforts to help me expose this horrible situation. The resident's of this community are and will be so grateful as well. This has taken a lot of work but it is something I just cannot walk away from, lives have been lost and more likely to come. I cannot stop until the proper powers are standing with me and changing "WHAT IS GOING ON" .

    Thank you for posting my article, the residents of Riverview thank you!

    I hope the people that “like” this post on GW will take the extra step to “like” the VOB page to help support “the water lady”, her courageous efforts, and all residents in Riverview, Florida that are sick and dying.

    Thank you, everyone! <3

  7. Florida… phosphate capital of the world. Mosaic has effective commercials on TV showing how they are reclaiming the phosphate lands. They are making golf courses on reclaimed land. Newcomers to Florida have no idea what the dangers are when living on previous phosphate land.
