Here ya go:

"I think everyone out there is assuming the site is highly contaminated," she said. "I don't think it will scare (developers). It will require significant resources."

The consultant's report lists several sites on the 138-acre Ford property that need to be checked. Forty are listed as likely to have been contaminated with solvents and other industrial chemicals, 34 are areas of possible contamination, and seven sites that were once excavated to remove pollution may need additional cleanup.

The sites include: a Little League baseball diamond on Cleveland Avenue that may have been used to dispose of battery casings; former sludge pits where paints and solvents were stored; and areas where storage tanks above and below ground held hazardous chemicals that may have spilled or leaked."

Heck, that isn't anything then.

The word where I work is they would never sell our property because of all the heavy metals, cyanide, hexachrome, etc.

The cost of clean up would far out weigh any profit from the liquidation of the property.
