Landfill contaminating creeks, groundwater & Cherokee citizens’ land

June 25, 2007

A Cherokee citizen has sent photos of water from the Cherokee Nation landfill gushing into a local creek and onto his land. These photos can be seen at John Cornsilk’s board here and here, and description of what is happening, including the failure of the Nation to address this hazard can be found here.

I was unable to download most of the pictures to my computer for uploading to here, so you will need to go to the links to see them. Besides, you need to read the accompanying discussion.

I was able to get one picture, however, showing a river of contaminated water flowing out of the landfill and onto a 100% disabled Cherokee veteran’s property:
