I’ve spent much of this summer reporting on Chicago’s Southeast Side for DNAinfo Chicago. The so-called “Forgotten 10th Ward” is home to much of what’s left of the city’s heavy industry, so many of the stories I’ve reported have focused on conflicts between industry and the environment.
Case in point: Agri-Fine Corp. is a family-owned business that manufacturers a component in animal feed. But the plant’s neighbors and the state allege that the company has been emitting noxious fumes from its facility. Here’s a round-up of stories I’ve reported on Agri-Fine. (I’ll update the list with any future stories, too.)
