I think it's a good idea about suing the chemical comp that sold the base the cleaning solvents found in the drinkinng water, where were their studies as to what may happen if humans comsumed it? Did they do an environmental impact survey as to what would happen when these solutions were dumped into the ground contaminating the wells and underground water supply all these wells were tapped into?
And who gave them permission to dump barrels into the creek running behind the daycare?
Another issue needs to be opened up here. TT1 was built on an old land fill. When I was a liffeguard I could see the deep ravine that ran directly behind the daycare. It was not a natural hill, because there were trees that were at least 20 ft. tall before the hill began. This was what prompted me to shoot the video footage, at the bottom of the ravine was rusted barrels of black . coming from some underground stream going into the New River inlet, then I found out from a base maintinance employee that the whole area was built on a landfill.
When base housing moved us from Pelilue to Bouganville at the top of the "hill" there were small monitors near the ceiling on the wall, that weren't smoke detectors, when I ask base housing what they were I was told radon detectors, but no one ever came and checked them.
Meanwhile the WM they moved into my old house on Pelilue (at the bottom of the hill) was told if she didn't take the house at 1062 E Pelilue she would be moved to the bottom of the list. She was sent to Desert Storm and her mother came to take care of her 2 small children. She immediately started getting ill, she prepared foods and put them in the stove, showed the 3 year old how to open the stove, laid down on the couch and died. She was dead 3 days before neighbors heard the children crying. Luckily the 3 year old knew how to feed himself and his brother. The news Jan Bean and base covered it up saying she died from diabetis complications.
Once again just like when they came to take swabs of my house, they came in hazmat suits to get her body out. The WM was brought back and ordered to never talk about it or get kicked out of the Corps and sent to Okinawah.
I sent the video tape (there are 2 more out there) to Jan Bean news chanel 12, who while investigating our claims met with the Major of Joint Public Affairs in Legerm, she married him, became the Mayor, and got rid of my information. But I had copies of everything except the video, I even have our actual medical records and my dog had some weird form of dermatitis and died of cancer. This is after our protest in Oct 91, we lived in TT1 from Sept 89-Nov 91.
So if the wells were capped and not being used that means the groundwater supply the base still uses has been contaminated, as well as the houses, and although they have torn them down to cover it up, it is only a matter of time before the new houses are also contaminated and history will repeat itself. That place is worse than the Love Canal.
