Residents of Marshall County, Ala. are planning to file suit against the Alabama Department of Environmental Management over the Bishop Landfill in Pleasant Grove. The residents had fought for almost a decade to get the landfill closed; the ADEM closed it in 2002, but the owner left the property unremediated. Under current state law, ADEM cannot force the landowner to clean it up, and residents want the state to take responsibility.
