imtellin, EZbase is the product left over from JEA's coal ash produced at the Northside power plant. JEA has been practically giving this stuff away, in my opinion, to get it off its hands. When they approached Steve before putting it on his property, they told him it was "safe as sand," and there would be no problems with it. He applied the EZbase on the numerous roads on his property. The EZbase actually looks nice and is very compact for driving on, but the real horror came when he found out just how toxic it is. He has a large pond on his property where the fish started turning up dead all of the sudden. His property also butts up against the North prong of Black Creek where the runoff can get into the waterway. He has been trying for years to get JEA to help him remove this toxic material from his property, but they have refused to lend a hand or take responsibility. EZbase has no place in Clay County or anywhere else as far as that is concerned. I work for a Civil Engineering Firm, and I cannot imagine how they could possibly keep this toxic ash from finding its way into our waterways given how much it rains in Florida. Someone needs to get a clue and stop taking back door bribes from JEA on this matter...again that's in my own opinion.

how about telling us what ez base is,, what its used for, where its used, & how it got on his property in the 1st place !!! did he lease his property to some entity that stored it on his property ??? did the state issue a permit for its storage on his property ??? did they even know it was on his property ???? and if it was being stored, then it wasn't applied so it could be dangerous, according to the state !!! seems someone is playing fast n loose with regulations here & methinks it might be state regulators... action news needs to uncover this issue asap !!! and point the fingers at those responsible... and get this mans property cleaned up as well !!!
