Amateur Sleuthing Uncovers History of Toxic Waste Disposal by Redevelopment Site Newly discovered records of illegal hazardous waste dumping raise fresh doubts over developer transparency and regulatory oversight. Dan Ross December 17, 2021 CAPITAL & MAIN The site of the planned Avenue 34 Project development in Lincoln Heights LA. Photo: Ted Soq Amateur sleuthing has unearthed  archival records from the 1980s showing how the site of a proposed housing development in Lincoln Heights, north of Downtown Los Angeles, immediately abuts the location of a massive illegal hazardous waste dump that led to a milestone prosecution in California.
