A new committee is studying concerns that the old Mission Bay Landfill in San Diego continues to leak toxins into the area's waters. In 1952, the city of San Diego opened the landfill located on the southeast shore of Mission Bay. Dumping was not regulated and the trash buried there was potentially toxic. The committee, made up of citizens, scientists, and government officials, is devising a plan of action, and hopes to take samples before the end of the year.
