Casino site investigated by environmental agencyWritten by Toledo Free Press Staff Writers | | firstname.lastname@example.org
FOX Toledo is reporting that a crew from Ohio Environmental Protection is investigating a mysterious substance on the site where the proposed Toledo casino is supposed to be built.
The proposed site, located at 1968 Miami St., is right off of I-75 near the Toledo-Rossford border. The problem is apparently some reddish brown substance coming off the property and into the Maumee River.
What this substance is, is the big question. The state EPA took a series of photos on Sept. 25 after a motorist drove by the proposed casino site in September. The motorist alerted the Coast Guard station in Toledo, who in turn alerted state authorities.
“It was something we wouldn’t expect, necessarily, to see going into the river,” said Heather Lauer, Media Relations Coordinator with the Ohio EPA in Columbus.
