Pinnacle Park #11 by Dave in Tejas.
from his flickr
“The top of Cockrell Hill inside the park once held a thin layer of soil filled with a native Texas ecosystem.
This image shows a section of the hill roughly 100 yards deep by a half mile long and dug out 70 feet deep. Toxins and polluted water used in the building process are allowed to pool and become part of the soil.
After the warehouses are complete, non-native trees and grasses will replace a once balanced ecosystem. Pollution and runoff will have 70 feet less to work its way to the water table, and erosion will begin on the surface”
