  1. 0 Votes

    Love Canal was a small community on the New York side of Niagara Falls that was built on a toxic waste dump. The original owner William T Love. attempted to build a canal joining the upper and lower Niagara but when if attempt failed the canal became a dump. The dump was then covered over and houses and a school were built. The toxins began to leach into the yards and house of the residents. The chemicals choked and burned skin. Several cases of birth defects have been reported and there is an ongoing investigation into leukemia rates. The area has since been evacuated and procedures taken to clean up the mess.
