Journalism in action: Cement Dumping 101

Apr 08, 2011 10:46 am
Carole Osterink's Gossips of Rivertown published photos taken the morning of Friday, April 9, after a reader observed an orange and blue cement truck at the southernmost edge of the paved area beyond Basilica Industria, dumping leftover cement into South Bay at 8:45 a.m. "He went down to investigate and took these pictures," Osterink reports. "Aerial photographs from the 1940s suggest that it was once common practice to clean out cement trucks and dump the slurry in South Bay along Route 9G. It seems the practice continues."
