Report: Ford near terms on seven-year-old Rouge plant cleanup lawsuit
The Detroit News reports that the Rogue complex encompasses 1,200 acres. Due to decades of heavy industrial manufacturing, the site is now contaminated by millions of gallons of coal tar and 65 million gallons of waste water held in lagoons and pools. Of that figure, around 70,000 gallons a day are estimated to be leaking into the local water table.
