Love Canal: In 1953 the Hooker Chemical Company covered a canal filled with hazardous waste and sold it to the city of Niagara Falls, NY. Twenty years later, a rash of birth defects, cancers, deaths and other problems, like toxic leakage, alerted citizens to the problems with the site. Company has paid more than $233 million to cover cleanup costs and victims’ medical expenses. (Source: EPA)
