Health hazards at former Allied Chemical site

September 05, 2013

I can't believe developer Marco Greenberg's quote in reference to the former Allied Chemical site and the potential hazards of building on top of capped chromium that "it's actually safer to build here than virtually anywhere else in the city" ("Harbor Point project stirs environmental concerns," Aug. 31).

It is insulting but so typical of greedy developers who will say anything to get their way. All they really see and care about are dollar signs, and they will tell the "stupid" public whatever they think will serve their interest.

If something does go wrong when that site is developed, will Mr. Greenberg be breathing in the cancerous chromium that he claims is so safe to build on? I doubt it.
