1982 soil sample from Times Beach, Mo that will be found to contain 300x the safe level of dioxin

Times Beach is a ghost town in St. Louis County, Missouri, Missouri, United States, located 17 miles (27 km) southwest of St. Louis and 2 mi (3 km) east of Eureka. Once home to more than two thousand people, the town was completely evacuated early in 1983 due to a dioxin contamination that made national headlines. It was the largest civilian exposure to dioxin in the country's history.

1. NO PERMIT TO MOVE TOXIC WASTE?

 

What a sad story of some crazy dude mixing toxic waste with waste oil and then spraying the oil wherever to get rid of the mess.

I think there are others still around who would do the same crazy thing today if they could to get rid of toxic waste.
