Plant life was turning black and dying all over the place.
Almost 300 animals died of diseases.
The contaminated air made peoples’ eyes and noses burnThe contaminated air made peoples’ eyes and noses burn. The air also had choking, faint, odors.
Babies were born with many birth defects including deafness, autism, blindness, three ears, and an extra row of teeth.
Pregnant women and children under the age of two had to be evacuated.
Chemicals leached into sewers.
Thousands of residents of the Love Canal wrote letters with complaints of illnesses and/or other effects.
They built a drain and chemical collection system to clean up all of the chemicals.
They built large pipes that carried all the dirty water to the sewers.
Eventually, new laws were made to determine where toxic chemicals should be disposed.
They took out all the dioxin and chemical contained water.
Hooker Chemical Company and Plastics Corporation were guilty for the Love Canal tragedy.
Hooker Chemical Company got sued for over $200,000,000.

DO NOT work with toxic chemicals carelessly.
When you work with chemicals that are toxic, or safe, make sure you clean up after yourself.
If you see something bad happening to our environment, tell an adult or contact someone who can help.
