The developers have argued they never touched the tarnished soil and have nothing to do with it. …residents are seeking payment for decades of poor health and declining home values due to the contamination. They claim they and their pets have been made sick with ailments such as headaches, cancer, blood disorders and many other conditions. and its sister non-profit websites,,,,,, and are owned by John Donovan. There is also a Wikipedia feature.
