Citizens of ‘Sludge City’ File Lawsuit Against Ford Over Toxic Waste

http://abcnews.go.com/Technology/story?id=6644516&page=1
In the 1960s, when the Ford Motor Company created some of the world’s most popular cars, it disposed of some of the toxic by-products in a wooded area of Ringwood, N.J., currently one of the most polluted areas in America. Overrun with paint deposits, battery acid and chemicals, local residents call the area Sludge Hill. The sludge, which is now rock hard, was once a colorful liquid goo. It was also a toxic brew of arsenic, benzene and lead, and it was runny, slippery and dangerous. “I was one of those children who used to go up on Sludge Hill,” recalled Wayne Mann, the neighborhood’s spokesman. “[I would] take a car hood and ride down, your hand steering in the wet sludge. You paint your face. You lick it, whatever. I was one of the young kids.”
