City cited for contamination - what the heck took so long?
The city of Florence has been polluting it's residents for decades. And just now has been cited for contamination. Unbelievable that it's taken so long to confirm what every nature lover and creek lover has known from the start. Put a feaking city landfill up on a hill above cypress creek, and it gets polluted. Place a city landfill within three miles of UNA and Historic downtown Florence, and UNA and Historic Downtown Florence and it's residents are at risk.
Paddle down the creek and you can't help but find odd foam, orange colored leakage around the dump, and quite often totally unnatural terrible smells. We all know to stay out of the creek a few days after a rain, but now our assumptions that the creek is being polluted by the city has been confirmed.
How can any of the commission continue to allow this risk to our residents is beyong me.
