Love Canal Lawsuits
FILE - This Aug. 2, 1978 file photo shows a fence and a sign cordoning off a contaminated toxic waste dump site in the Love Canal neighborhood of Niagara Falls, N.Y. With Love Canal getting national attention, President Jimmy Carter in 1978 issued a disaster declaration that eventually led to evacuation and compensation for more than 900 families. The crisis also led to federal Superfund legislation to clean up the nation's abandoned waste sites. (AP Photo/File)
