Low oxygen levels and toxic smoke also contributed to the hazardous health and safety conditions in the town (About, 2017). Because public health had declined so drastically “In 1984, a voluntary program was begun to move residents from their homes. Many accepted buyout offers for their properties and moved elsewhere. After leaving, their homes were leveled. In 1992, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania used eminent domain to take control of all the property within the town.
