Dear Santa Barbara View:
Heal the Ocean has been working on this problem for years.
The attached (below) Google map shows an outline of contaminated properties in SB waterfront area, made by Heal the Ocean, piecing together reports of contaminated soils and groundwater. This is only a start, because since we started this research we have the findings of Cheri Rae re: 617 Garden Street, we know about Artisan Court on Cota Street, and since we made this map we have discovered the locations of old burn dumps beneath Ortega Park and Santa Barbara Junior High School. The actual landfill operated by the City on the lower east side is 132 Garden Street, at the corner of Garden Street and 101 south onramp. The landfill materials were discovered by a City-hired engineering firm, whose report HTO has.
