When hospitals aren't the best neighbor

Although homeowners are required to disclose information regarding environmental hazards near their residential properties, they often plead ignorance(no excuse). Remorseful buyers have the right to sue for breach of contract well AFTER the closing if such info was public knowledge. PlanetHazard uses information from the EPA to map over 86,000 companies throughout the United States that emit hazardous air pollutants. They black flag known pollution sources--with a detailed breakdown--on Google-friendly maps, county by county. {One unexpected source: Clara Maas Hospital.}
