Detailed Information:
The U.S. Army has used seven ravines on the former Fort Sheridan north of Chicago as landfills since 1940. Now that the base is closing, the truth about the toxicity of the landfills is becoming clear. The Army is resisting excavation of these toxins from the shoreline of the largest freshwater resource in the United States. Why?
