Who can tell us where the property in the aerial photograph(s) below is located where junk cars
used to be parked dangerously and deliberately close to the busy road?
The year that each aerial photo was taken is given in the upper left corner of the photo.
The clues will consist of adding another aerial photo of a later year to the set.

UNLESS you would like to see the solution.




SOLUTION


It's the property on the east side of Cleveland Avenue between Uniontown and Greentown.
Notice the house, in the yellow circle below, completely surrounded by many junked cars packed
tightly around it:

Fortunately, the serious danger to drivers and very visible eye-sore has finally been removed.
However, what toxic chemicals continue to lurk in and under ground and thus continue to impose a
danger to the entire community and future generations? For example, toxic liquids such as spilled
(or deliberately dumped) antifreeze, oils and fluids containing heavy metals, battery acid, mercury,
refrigerants, gasoline, and grease, as well as solids such as lead and asbestos that continue to
spread and contaminate the environment?

The aerial photo below includes a red rectangle to identify the area in the aerial photos above.

NOTE: The red polygons north and southwest 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
":
