Funny how people can argue over TOXIC WASTE. Is anyone on this list a chemical expert? Radiation expert? Toxic Waster expert?

No? I did not think so.

SO....let's all reference our text books.

I am going to start the UNIONTOWN WATER COMPANY. My water will not only offer you the hydration you so desperately need, but also offers more minerals than your kidneys know what do to with. One bottle and you will glow like one of those dumb a$$ glow sticks those freaks at the clubs dance around with.

Buy one bottle get 1 free!!

You have no idea the expertise of those posting here. But if you are limiting conversation to those with expertise, I have a chemical engineering degree. How about you?

It is a public forum and everyone has their right to their opinion. But some of the statements posted in this thread have no scientific or logical validity.

There is a stream that runs through there and the surrounding area, I'm pretty sure it ties in with the Tusc. River. I know people who live within a 2 mile radius of the dump and the stream borders their property, their animals drank out of the stream, all got cancer and died, the wife ( who worked outside gardening for a hobby died of cancer. Many of their neighbors, died of cancer.
A man who owns a large portion of property that butts up against the dump, his young son died of cancer, his son used to play in the stream as a child. That man tried to have the dump investigated years before it was closed to no avail. When his son died, it was investigated and it was said to be true that the kind of cancer he had could be attributed to the materials in the dump, that was clear, but instead of taking blame and responsibility they accused the father of killing his only son with "lawn chemicals", when I heard that I was outraged and everytime I drive by there I think of that and it still angers me a lot.

Check that, Gain Some. MOST, IF NOT ALL (yours excluded; of course) lack validity!

I am a former resident of Uniontown. People really did not know what was going on as far as what was being dumped. It was considered an EPA supersite for many years. There were high levels nof methane and 1000s of 55 gallon dromd dropped off in that site. The EPA was going to clean it up and fine the dumpers (which included the Akron Rubber Companies)Then all at once it got quiet and one of illustrious trustees who is deceased sided in with the rubber companies and from that point on nothing was done. I feel the residents got short end of the stick. The government did make people get city water and cap their wells. There was alot of things that were done such as buying up people's houses, tearing them down, and not allowing activity such as building so many yards from the site. If there is no problem why was this done. I ask the question of some of you who have commented would you live on that site? Would you allow your family to live there, sink a well and drink the water, and let your children play there? Talk is cheap actions speak louder than words.

None of those activities are being proposed (building houses or digging wells). They are looking to make it green space, which does not disturb the soil or anything that remains below the surface.
