Can anyone tell me when dawson pool was open, in Cliffside park. I have heard that before it was swimming pool it was a runoff pool for by products from mines in area, and only way to to conceal this mine runoff was to incase this land in concrete, has anyone else heard that? There is abandon mine behind driveway at 3441 Blakburn Ave.

I don't know anything about the concrete but I do know there abandon mines all over that end of Ashland. I have one on my property as well. Is the one on Blackburn closed in so people can't go in it?
The mine is behind driveway at 3441-3437 Blackburn Ave or under driveway, it is mapped, are people worry about those chemicals in land, 100 years after mine closed there are still chemicals in land at this location? Granny Goodwitch store used to be old coal store for this operation, then when it shut down it became a gas station, store, I believe the Hayes Family owned for years.

Granny was a smart woman(too bad her grand kids didn't get any of it) so it wouldn't surprise me any if she ran it.

The city of ashland is the same as Love Canal, the only difference is coal mine, they allowed subdivision to be built all around also on land that was former coal mine, city let it's own people down, concealed truth from them, tests done on soil around city. Arsenic is by-product of mines.

Yeah it has NOTHING to do with the poor air quality.... Its just because of 100+ year old coal mines? Have you not looked at the pollutants that AK, Marathon, Air Products, and the old Coke Plant put into the air? Thats the real problem. Coal is and has been mined all around Kentucky for over 100years and other communitites dont have as many cancer patients as we do. Its in the air more than the land.

Oh I'm not saying its only the coal. We live in a horrible chemical valley. I would of loved to see the beauty of this area before it was slaughtered.

Arsenic is by-product of mining also Lead, Mercury, all mines have to have runoff, it is easy to tell Arsenic in soil, if you come across grey or silver matter in soil, good chance it is Arsenic, I heard Granny Goodwitch store land was tested and there was alot of grey and silver matter in that land, it was former coal mine operation,I heard Mont Hayes bought land, he died at age 52 of Kidney disease, Boyd co ranks 32 out of 120 counties in Ky for Kidney deaths, wondering? How could there be no record with city that this land was former coal mine operation?
wondering myself

..........I have ask myself this very question many times. I am guessing the insurance companies buried this information.

Here is shocker,did city build those fountains in Central Park,or did coal co that sold it to Ashland, if city built them should be safe, if coal co built them it was to hide chemicals from mining operations, a concrete coffin.
