SOLUTION


The aerial photo below includes a white rectangle to identify the area in the aerial photos above
and a red rectangle to show where the former Boettler Auto Salvage Yard was located in that area,
which is now Federal Express and, across the road, Green High School.

NOTE:
The red polygons east-northeast and southeast of the area above identify the following sites that
the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) believes and has documented as being "responsible for
negatively impacting the surrounding groundwater with the potential of presenting a significant
human health concern
":
   Industrial Excess Landfill (IEL), Superfund Site, Uniontown, Ohio, U.S. EPA ID: OHD000377911
   WISE ROAD DISPOSAL SITE, Green Township, Summit County, Ohio, U.S. EPA ID: OH0001328350
Those sites are investigated, explained, and explored in the The Green History Detectives SOLUTIONs for
Episode 5 and Episode 23 respectively.
