Centerpoint cries wolf and Will County Residents suffer

The company raised environmental concerns about Lepacek’s property, where he also operates All American Tree Service and stores about 30 vehicles he has collected for future resale.
While Lepacek calls them “vintage” cars, CenterPoint referred to them as “abandoned.” Lepacek’s collection includes a 1955 Studebaker President and a 1972 Chevelle convertible. The vehicles, crowded into a pole building, are in various states of disrepair.
How that makes me laugh Centerpoint is worried about contamination from Oil and leaking fluid from old cars and etc, I almost busted a gut when I Read that in the Hearald (spew) News today, when Centepoint took over the Elwood ammunition plant, the hazards that were already there out numbered the ones at Lepacek’s property.
Silver Azide, Silver Acetylide, Lead Azide and Mercury Fulminate were just some of the chemicals that were found on the old Elwood ammunition plant, nobody worries what is still there or what was just covered over and built over.
How about the people that work there now at the Elwood intermodial what are they being exposed to… I could go on and on about what information is available on the Web (Environmental Protection Agency: Joliet army ammo manufacturing) once the area of the old Elwood ammunition plant was supposedly cleaned up where did they (meaning Centerpoint properties) get rid of the harmful contaminates at.
the Lead Azide Lagoon that was used as a settling basin to store wastewater treatment sludge, Of the thousands of organic compounds that can be found in Elwood ammunition plant samples the ambient air and ground area holds a relatively small number to high enough toxicity and/or are present at a sufficient concentration to give rise to potential human health problems. How about the rest of the chemicals that are still there and the ones now leaking from containers on the property currently?
