The Ramapo Mountain people have suffered the effects of this sludge for years and years. Their health has been massively compromised by this outrageous use of the land. They continue to suffer serious health problems linked to this polution. This is an outrage. Each time the issue was brought up, again and agian, effective and complete remediation has not been thoroughly competed. Had this outrageous condition been discovered in Scaresdale, I doubt it would still be an active complaint.
The Ford Motot Company, township of Ringwood, the State of NJ and the Federal Government have an obligation to provide adequate remediation of this long standing polution and to compensate assist those who are its victims.

That these conditions persist is an outrage and monumental injustice against the Upper Ringwood residents.

Don't count on Ringwood- they spent the money that was supposed to go to the homeowners on "open space"
