Where can I find the most polluted and toxic locations in the US? I Do NOT want to visit any, I just want to know where they are. Does the EPA or any other NGO have a specific webpage identifying them? Please mention where I can find the info and I will share it will you all.

&^*) - Excuse the language but there are 5 pages of Superfund Sites in New Jersey! I knew there were some, but to my shock there was one in my hometown in Bergen County, NJ. There was also another 5 in the surrounding area and I live in a very desirable area. Is it me or does NJ seem to have more superfund sites per capita than many other states? What does everyone else think of the superfund sites in their state? Discuss.

You didn't know that? LOL. Jersey had a lot of factories and chemical plants, and back when it was less populated they thought nothing of dumping stuff into the ground or letting it run into the waterways.

There are newspaper articles from the 1800's about the pollution of the Passaic River downstream from Paterson.

I personally think the toxic waste in the soil is what makes our tomatoes the best in the nation!

The superfund sites are not a concern because I know about them. What scares the **** out of me are the thousands of polluted sites not yet classified or uncovered that could be right under your feet.

....dons tin foil hat.

EPA is part of program to destroy American sovereignty and fold the world into the more easily managed and controlled Chinese system.

Constitution being #1 enemy of NWO globalists.

For example: In super mineral rich Lake County, Colorado....there existed significant heavy metal effluent from the Oro tunnel. So the EPA almost turned the entirety of Lake County into an EPA superfund site.

It was like finding a problematic block and condemning the city, its suburbs, AND the county.
