8Brio Refinery in Texas
This 58-acre site used to be the location of manufacturers of chemical weapons, between the years 1957 and 1982. However, this industrial location came under fire when toxic wastes thrown by the refinery leaked and eventually resulted to damage to the environment and worse, the health of the people living nearby. It was shut down by the EPA and has since then abandoned. Click the next ARROW to see the next image!
