Do you have a soil dump in your neighbourhood?
How bad could it be?
There could be one truck every minute, of every work day, for several years, going past your house to go in and out of just one fill site. The soil at one site in the protected Oak Ridges Moraine has cyanide at 3000 times the acceptable limit. Soil dumped at a sheep farm turned out to be toxic to sheep. A homeowner now has carcinogenic dry cleaning fluid in his drinking water well.
Where is it from?
Why is it happening now?
Surely, somebody is in charge?
Somebody should do something!
What can I do?
Support the Ontario Soil Regulation Task Force to
protect Ontario’s farmland and drinking water from dirty dirt.
