David Beckham’s latest proposal to build a pro soccer stadium in Miami might hinge on the cost to clean up soil contamination from the city’s long-shuttered trash incinerators.
The city used the ash as fill in many of its public parks, according to Louise Caro, a lawyer and partner at Napoli Shkolnik PLLC in Miami. Caro is representing Miami residents in a proposed class action against the city that claims incinerator ash contamination in the West Grove area has caused health problems including heart and respiratory disease, cancer, and miscarriages.
Incinerator ash is known to contain pollutants such as arsenic, lead, mercury, dioxins, and polychlorinated biphenyls, according to Caro’s lawsuit.
