Foul Ball

The Giants' new stadium site is almost certainly seeping a stew of toxic chemicals into the bay. Why doesn't the government care?

When asked why, the Giants consultant said, "Although the possibility exists that an additive effect could result from simultaneous exposure to multiple chemicals of potential ecological concern, current practice is to evaluate [toxic] risks individually using conservative water quality criteria comparisons in screening-level ecological risk evaluations."

In other words: They did not study such effects, because they didn't have to.
