Residents of the Carson Carousel neighborhood marched in protest from Dolphin Park to a Shell Oil facility on Wilmington Avenue Friday evening. The Carousel tract is built over a former Shell Oil tank farm and contamination was discovered in the soil in 2007. The Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board is overseeing Shell’s clean-up plans; which residents complain are moving too slow.
