The toxic chemicals included benzene, trichloroethylene (TCE), tetrachloroethylene, perchloroethylene (PCE), and vinyl chloride (VC), which are known to be harmful carcinogens to humans. These toxic chemicals were leaked into the ground water from waste disposal sites and underground storage tanks.
