Toms River is a well-documented exposť of toxic industrial plants, corporate greed, and government neglect in Toms River, NJ. At the heart of the story are the determined residents who waged a hard-fought grassroots campaign and legal battle that ultimately succeeded in holding Ciba Geigy responsible for illegal dumping into the ocean and ground and drinking water wells. In 1983, the USEPA designated it a Federal Superfund site. Cleanup measures have been underway ever since.
