Two additional dumping grounds of potentially dangerous ash have been discovered in Duval County, part of an ongoing Department of Environmental Protection investigation into old ash dumpsites. The ash was dumped in several places between the 1890s and the early 1970s, a few of which were previously identified. The city of Jacksonville ran several solid waste incinerators, and disposed of the ash from them in scattered locations. Federal officials are trying to track down those sites.
