Residents living near the Nash Road Landfill, a hazardous waste Superfund site in the Town of Wheatfield next to the border with North Tonawanda, alleged in the lawsuit that Occidental dumped toxic Love Canal waste at the town’s unlined municipal landfill.
The lawsuit claimed that the toxic chemicals migrated into the surrounding residential neighborhood – in some cases chemicals were found inside homes, attorneys said – sickening people and causing a multitude of serious illnesses, including cancer, cardiac, neurological, endocrine, and reproductive disorders.
