The documents from various groups and goverment agencies are long.

Key concerns are the comments that:

  1.  The site has chemicals that present an increased cancer risk.

  2. So much dangerous chemical residues in soil that Fairfax County mandated all rain runoff must not run into the local sewer systems.   This is why the plots slope downward from the street.

  3. Some units can not have basements – too much chemical residue.

  4. Be aware of chemicals during the contruction phase. – (what about those that live there)?

  5. Condition for building is that the builder must disclose to potential buyers that property is over a landfill.

There is a growing concern about the many toxic threats that people encounter, and more questions about cancers and diseases that are “Mysteriously increasing”.   National Leaders and Venture Capitolists are having a conference on October 12, 2010 to forge a plan to more aggressively attach these issues.

    I am very interested in your research, and I have spoken to you in the past in regards to my Liposarcoma and the fact that I was born and raised in Richland, Washington and the Hanford Nuclear Reservation during the 1950’s through the 1980’s. I am now 53 years old and was diagnosed in 2006 with Retroperitoneal Liposarcoma.

    As you are very aware of the complete disregard of the government in the 1950’s and the emissions of radioactive toxins being released into the air and into the Columbia river, I would be really interested in any other information you have regarding other’s that have been affected with Sarcoma.

    I have friends that are “down winders” but none with Sarcoma. And I have no idea how to go about finding this information or other information in regards to other cancers?

    Thank you so much for spending your time and knowledge with all of us and in hopes that we might save others in the future.

      Julia,

      Sorry for taking so long for getting back. Yes, we have lots of landfills, and many people, – most people dont know if they have lived near one.

      It would be interesting to track a persons entire life and evaluate where they have lived and what field they have worked in. I bet that what we would discover would be shocking.
