Comments on: From illegal landfill to natural urban oasis http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/2009/07/08/from-illegal-landfill-to-natural-urban-oasis/ Global environmental challenges Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:14:55 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Brian Foulkrod http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/2009/07/08/from-illegal-landfill-to-natural-urban-oasis/comment-page-1/#comment-340209 Thu, 09 Jul 2009 08:31:26 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/environment/?p=13389#comment-340209 I agree with the bit of monitoring it. Even best plans and projections don’t always guarantee success in the long run. Too bad they can’t bring back chain gangs…let the folks who dumped the stuff get 20 years walking in circles chained together picking up anything anybody else just dumps. And like the residents in the area, they get no warning or protective gear.

It would be interesting if they do capture the methane gas eventually to provide electricity generation or something to that effect.

We have a similar park in our neighborhood. Ours contains low level and above low level radiation. It is now a park over top of the clay container.

Mount Trashmore in Virginia Beach, Virginia is an excellent example of what could happen. The toxins will leach out for decades. Someday, maybe, it might be safe enough for children to use.
