HEALTH DANGER TO NORTH CHANNEL; Jackie Young urges action on waste pits

ENVIRONMENTAL ACTIVIST JACKIE YOUNG leads a discussion about the current status of the San Jacinto River Waste Pits, and remediation schemes. She is shown with a slide of Houston Chronicle Cartoonist Nick Anderson, illustrating the idea that the perpetrators of the dump site are protecting themselves, not the public. Young was a resident of Highlands who suffered serious health problems from toxic well water. She feels that the waste pits in the river pose a serious threat to the public, and has joined two organizations that are working to eliminate the site and its toxins from the river.

ENVIRONMENTAL ACTIVIST JACKIE YOUNG leads a discussion about the current status of the San Jacinto River Waste Pits, and remediation schemes. She is shown with a slide of Houston Chronicle Cartoonist Nick Anderson, illustrating the idea that the perpetrators of the dump site are protecting themselves, not the public. Young was a resident of Highlands who suffered serious health problems from toxic well water. She feels that the waste pits in the river pose a serious threat to the public, and has joined two organizations that are working to eliminate the site and its toxins from the river.

HIGHLANDS – On the eve of a trial that Harris County is pursuing against the companies that are responsible for the toxic waste pits in the San Jacinto River, environmental activist Jackie Young chose to hold a public forum to review the status of remediation efforts, and to push for more involvement from the community in government efforts to clean-up the river and the environment in general.

Young is vitally interested in this issue, because her family lived in Highlands for years, and suffered serious health issues which finally were blamed on toxins in their well water.

Now she works with Texans Together and the San Jacinto River Coalition, to educate the public and lobby for more government effort to clean up the environment.

Wednesday’s meeting was attended by about seventy-five people, at the community center. On hand were many residents of the area that had experienced health problems and were seeking answers and help to deal with them. There was also a contingent of private lawyers, talking with people about their situations, and looking for potential clients.
