The United States Environmental Protection Agency has been asked by the State of Ohio and the City of Dayton to investigate the disovery of hundreds of abandoned drums in Montgomery County. Some of the drums contain paint wastes and printing plates which appear to have at one time belonged to the publishing companies.

I need to talk with anyone who had information about paint waste disposal practices, the names of employees handling trash and garbage or photos of the drums that were used back then in order to help with the investigation.

The names of anyone who contacts me will not be made known by me.

Good luck on that one as many of the former employees have passed away, or left the state for other jobs when the publishing companies shut down for good.If you've lived here any length of time you will notice that Dayton is hardly the city of yesteryears.You'd have better luck putting this question on the memories blogs as theres alot more attention paid to that section.

We can at the very least give information on diseases that employees suffered and subsequently died from if this could be a factor. My grandfather was a 'cutter' during the McCalls days. He retired in '63 and his brother, my great uncle, retired in '65. Both died from prostate cancer and the subsequent surgeries caused dementia. If you need a name of the employee, please get with me at cindiloohoo55a aol.com Maybe we can all contribute to that part of the mystery, if only a connection is made through disease, etc. So many passed who worked at the Mound in Moraine from Cancer, as well as Delco, et.al. Industry seems to be causing MS in many baby booomers as well as the chemtrails. ~ Cindi

I would think that there would be a wealth of clues as to the state of hazardous waste disposal methods were ages ago in the records of Skinner's Landfill and the Powell Road waste disposal/Superfund site in the Huber Heights area. I'm a former criminal investigator myself, and it seems to me that if you are indeed EPA the first thing you would check on would be the information you already have.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it sounds to me as if you are trying to find the deep pockets for a "superfund" lawsuit. There might be a few deep pockets in Dayton nowadays, but the only thing in them is air. Rotsa Ruck.
