FUEL or WASTE CHEMICAL SPILL
My neighbor has been making diesel fuel in the back yard. Some of it is for personal use, some is being sold to customers. After a recent rain, some uncovered diesel fuel or waste product overflowed and ran into my yard. After a few days my grass began to die. The spill is very close to a tree and is approaching other flowers and plantings and my house.
Here are pictures taken on 7/4/2006 (Let Freedom Ring!):

|Views of the results of the fuel spill. The grass is dying, the evergreen tree and peonies are in the line of the runoff...|

|Clearly, the runoff is coming directly from this processing activity and is running downhill TOWARDS MY HOUSE!|
|Here are some different views of the "processing area." Note how there is not even any grass left in the work area.|
|Another shot of the processing area after they covered the big pot of fuel or waste with a sheet of white plastic...after I complained.|
