"Cheryl Johnson did not know that the contaminated dirt from the Northland dealt. Dumps had ended up in a landfill in the toxic Donut until I told her, but she didn't seem shocked by it. Although Cheryl has taken on her mother's mantle and has now been fighting for years to protect an advocate for her neighborhood. She also seemed almost resigned the fact that in Chicago her neighborhood has already been designated as the destination for this kind of waste we cared most fifty documented landfilled than the other air city. Anyway, would you want it to go to someone else? At least she said the legal dumps in north Lonsdale had been dismantled and the waste had not been sent to another illegal dumb. I'm just saying that if that's the vice that we have to may least we know going to a place where it's been monitoring regulate. For the waste from the north Lauderdale dumps that was not hazardous there were other options ones in which no neighborhood had to be sacrificed. And the city took this other approach in a white neighborhood with ties to Chicago's most powerful family, although the contaminated dirt from John Christopher's dumps was taken to the hazardous waste landfill near guild gardens. The bulk of the material nearly all the concrete slabs and chunks of asphalt ended up in Palmisano park. Hamas on a park is a twenty seven acre Greenspace in Bridgeport, a neighborhood about three and a half miles southwest of the loop. When the weather's nice. It's a great place to walk your dog or have a picnic or take a date. I've been on dates here. There's a fishing pond and a terrorist walkway and natural landscaping with native wildflowers. The tip off that this place was not always a beautiful public park comes from the massive grassy three hill in the center of the park. It's like Dr Bullard said in Houston, Chicago is completely flat. So if you see a mountain be suspicious landfill. Home Asano park used to be a limestone mine called Stearns quarry it opened in the eighteen thirties around the same time Chicago became a city at first it was the edge of town. But as the new city expanded and the population boomed, the densely populated neighborhood of Bridgeport grew up around the Corey we found this incredible black and white aerial photo of the Corey it shows densely packed rose three story apartment buildings and bungalows and workmen's cottages. Built right up against the edge of this massive pit three hundred eighty feet deep. That's so deep you could fit the statue of liberty inside it. The quarry closed in nineteen sixty nine but the pit remained. You could drive through Bridgeport, down hall, stead street and peer into the abyss. And by the mid nineties when city officials were casting around for a place to take the debris from the dumps in north Mondale the head another problem on their hands. We heard about it from environment. Commissioner Henry Henderson the old quarry Stearns quarry..

"Hi, everyone Robin here before we start this week's episode. I need to share some sad news with you. Henry Henderson died last week. If you've been following along with the show, you know that Henderson was the lawyer turned Chicago environment Commissioner who was one of the few city officials to do anything about the northbound L mountain. He spent years battling John Christopher's illegal dumps. However imperfectly. Henderson had lung cancer, and he had recently entered hospice care, he was just sixty six years old after Henderson left city government. He went to work for the natural Resources Defense Council or NRDC a kind of legal aid fund for the environment. As the group's longtime midwest director, he spearheaded a host of initiatives. They were all aimed at keeping our air land and water clean and at protecting vulnerable communities from the hazards of pollution and industry. Under Henderson, the NRDC sued the city of Flint and the state of Michigan forcing them to replace the service lines that had caused so many Flint residents to develop lead poisoning. The group took on BP forcing the oil giant to install air pollution controls at its massive refinery in whiting, Indiana, and the NRDC went after a subsidiary of the coke brothers after the. Trucked black mountains of petroleum coke into a residential neighborhood on Chicago's south east side. Richard m Daley the former Chicago mayor and Henderson's former boss said of Henry, he has long been instrumental in the environmental movement here long before cities care to acknowledge the need for such initiatives for us here at the city. Henry Henderson was also instrumental in helping us get to the bottom of this particular environmental story. So perhaps there is no better place to begin this week's episode. It's called the cleanup. In January nineteen ninety six just a few days after operation, silver, shovel became public. One of Chicago's US congressman called a press conference at the site of the north Lonsdale. Dumps dick Durbin was the highest ranking politician to publicly acknowledged the dumps now he was there to demand a cleanup. Heavy snow is falling Durban wears a black wool overcoat with the lapels turned up protection from the wind behind him. The mountain looms covered in a thick dusting of white. It looks almost pastoral but read dump trucks and yellow bulldozers crawl over the site. You can hear them being in the background. Durbin turns to face the cameras operation, silver, shovel is called our attention to what is a blight on the city of Chicago and our state these legal dumps in a residential neighborhood are absolutely shameful to north. Lonzo residents though, what was shameful with how long it had taken dick Durbin and other high level elected officials to pay close attention to the dumps Durban had shown up nearly six years after residents at I killed to public officials for help. I'm calling on the US Birmingham protection agency to come forward and determined I whether there's any evidence of hazardous waste at any of these operations, silver shovel sites, the EPA has the authority to respond immediately. If there's evidence, I might tell you that Mr. of course, the EPA had already been to north Lonsdale. Two years earlier, the Illinois and US EPA as had removed roughly a hundred fifty truckloads of hazardous waste, including barrels of mystery chemicals. But they had left the six stories of debris behind. The federal agencies behind operation, silver, shovel had no intention of cleaning up the dumps either they didn't see it as their responsibility. But ultimately, the investigation was a catalyst for change for nearly six years. It was if no one outside north Lonsdale could even see the six mountain in the middle of the city, but suddenly almost magically operation silver shovel. And the association of these dumps with an undercover corruption probe made the mountain visible to everyone political figures who hadn't so much as mentioned it in the past we know shaming others for ignoring it, silver, shovel set off a flurry of activity that residents welcomed, but it came with the bitterness of knowing that it could have happened six years sooner. The beeping trucks and bulldozers behind dick Durbin were there to clean up the dumb to dismantle the mountain. He's by piece, the bulldozers scoop up bucketful after bucketful of concrete slabs, asphalt chunks and dirt and drop them into the backs of the dump trucks and each full truck. Then drives out of the lot and takes its cargo away..

"After Henry Henderson, the city lawyer failed to get an injunction. He realized that if he was going to sway the judge, he'd have to change his tactics. So rather than argue that John Christopher was breaking the law on technical grounds, like not having the right permits or debating what even his waist Henderson and his team would hammer home the actual harm being done to the community. But John Christopher pivoted to instead of just tagging people. He also began waging a hearts and minds campaign to try to sway people from north Lonsdale to his side. He hired someone from the neighborhood to act as a community lease on and paradoxically. He offered to help clean up other vacant, lots in the area by giving people dirt. He'd screamed at the dumps. And some people took John Christopher his word. I found this petition signed by thirty north Lauderdale residents. It reads the following persons welcome Christiane. That's his company Christiane into the community and are grateful that the company is involved in a beautification project that will benefit the community and its residents. John Christoper took this petition and submitted into evidence during the court case to try to convince the judge of his good works north Lonsdale. He also started handing out money, small amounts, fifteen dollars here, ten dollars there sensibly to pay for cleaning supplies. MS Ashford brought this up. When we started talking about her neighbors, the Dickerson's. Mattel, yell, something shale. Let's be straight about deal. Millie got money from John Milly, Milly Dickerson. Whose apartment was right on the same lot as the larger of the two dumps and whose son had asthma as we were talking MS Ashford's daughter called Millie Dickerson deceives around that day leader in the conversation. MS Dickerson actually walked into the interview and told us she had taken money from John Christopher game day, talked to me and he's washing hanging clothes on beg poet. Any told me see that. You don't man about that. We overhand dumping this dump and then how he's Monnet to by using detergent and wash tone Wednesday month acid..

"We will object to the use of the term waste was this pas on this firmament. Henry Henderson had previously won cases dealing with hazardous waste according to federal law. Hazardous has a very specific definition for waste to be considered hazardous. It has to be highly flammable or reactive or toxic stuff like that. Henderson new this case would be different because a pile of crushed Uproxx is not the same thing as glow in the dark sludge in the strictest legal sense. This waste was not hazardous, but he never expected his team to have to debate whether in the eyes of the law. These dumps were in fact waste. What do you mean by wastes in a kind of shrewd and tactical move John Christopher, and his lawyer argued that this stuff wasn't waste at all. We will check to use of turn waste when referring to Adams for the purposes of this deposition when I am talking about waste, I am talking about the materials that your company ordinarily receives and sells. Okay. So we are talking about concrete rebar, asphalt clay stone, things that nature after something that is not waist. Okay. I don't want to get into for the purpose of the question. We specific when she identifies what she's speaking about. You are just not to answer. When she uses the term waste unless she specifies I don't handle waist. Okay. And I know I am getting brought into a suit because of ways as the defining dirt asphalt, broken concrete is waste. I know that, but that is not waste, and that is not an issue to go over at this point. I don't handle waste it. Is your contention that you handle material? Is that material. Material. John Christopher argued that he wasn't dumping waste but recycling material. Under city law. Anything that could be recycled was not considered waste. And in a legal brief, John Christopher's lawyer argued that the materials at the site weren't waste because they were being recycled. Remember John Christopher said that he was operating a rock crusher to pulverize all of that waste material, whatever it was and recycle it back into gravel. Of course, the problem with that argument was that only a very small percentage of the stuff he was bringing to the lots was being recycled. Much of it was just left there. The judge. In this case, Lester Forman died in two thousand three. So we weren't able to ask him what he thought about these arguments. But Henry Henderson says at the judge, took these arguments seriously enough to consider the junk Christopher could be in the right. This was clue. The case here where you could say, look, there is a value to this concrete. There's embedded value in all kinds of things can be treated as waste. That's actually the genius of the recycling movement is looking at imbedded value and things that are treated as waste, but actually have reuse possibility Henderson also believes that the judge was swayed by the fact that in a strict technical sense, nothing being trucked. The lot was hazardous as wasn't cyanide or arsenic. Nothing obviously threatened to catch fire or poison people. He thinks it would have been easier to get the injunction if it had been. Just two days after the city sued the judge denied the request for an injunction city tried again, and their second request was also denied. The case would keep working its way through the legal system. But while it did Christopher would be free to continue dumping. How did you feel during this time? I mean, I can imagine frustrated and going to a lot of community meetings was people being very, very upset and outrage about the fact that this actively was continuing to recur in their community. This was this is a big deal. We will fighting in court and he was still operating. Again, here's Jacqueline Rodney who live near one of the dumps eight put is much as he could on the site while we were in court. Ten months after John Christopher, I showed up north Lonsdale. The dumps had almost doubled in height and the neighborhood was about to find out just how destructive this non hazardous material could be. That's after the break..

"As a kid growing up in granite city, Illinois, Henry Henderson would spend summer nights walking the mile or so from his home to the steel mills and watch them light up the sky. We'd go out in the night when it was really dark and watch them poor, the slag in return the sky into bright, bright, bright brightness because of the intensity of the heat involved in that hundred grew up around steel generations of his family had worked in and around the mills. My great grandfather came from South Wales from huge mining district, and he was, you know, at the Blast Furnace and who's a worker, and they'd come out, he'd come out every day to see a flag was flying at the mill to see if they're hiring, but but moving from mining to steal was in some ways moving from wife that was almost indistinguishable from the Roman surf into part of the modern. Demy Henry saw how vital the mills were to his family, but also the pollution. They spewed into his town, the toxic metals dumped in nearby waterways, deep black, smoke pouring out of the smokestacks and he wasn't alone and thinking, this was a problem. This was the nineteen seventies when the environmental movement was taking root and Henderson got swept up in it. It's fundamentally a question of Justice really key areas you where you can see significant issues of the Justice and the community is within the environment where burdens fall and we're benefits are not going Henry, went to law school, moved to Chicago and went to work for the Illinois Torney general on a task force dealing with hazardous waste. We had a huge number of issues. It went directly to questions of equity, Justice, quality of life, health and safety, and this was an opportunity to really get into actually solving problems us. The law as way to solve problems. Henry Henderson was beginning to make a name for himself as someone who used the full weight of the law to defend people from hazardous waste in his two or so years. At the attorney general's office. He worked on about ten cases, prosecuting dangerous polluters. An often the best weapon in Henry's arsenal was an injunction a legal order that forces someone to stop what they're doing under threat of arrest. So like in one of his cases, he was able to get a court order to stop a bunch of waste transfer stations from leaking into surrounding farmland. Henry Henderson, got good at cases like these going to judge getting an injunction and forcing polluters to immediately stop whatever they were doing. And so when the north Lonsdale dumping Hase's landed on his desk in June of nineteen ninety, he thought it would be an open and shut case. By this point, Henderson had moved to a new job as an environmental lawyer for the city of. Chicago, and he thought it would be pretty easy to do north Lonsdale what he'd done so many times before go to judge and get an injunction. Because this was clearly beginning of gigantic problem and needed to be stopped. Did you have full faith at this point that the courts would deliver Justice that the courts would produce some meaningful results in the situation? Yes, I actually actually I did..
