This is oil that has been carelessly spilled on the ground. When it rains, it floats on the rainwater run-off and on to my property. From the far side of their property to my property it is about a 3'drop so the rainwater runs my way. They have built a dam along the property line but it just makes the rainwater concentrate to the front of my yard. It does not stop it. In my backyard I have rainwater run-off that is almost black and smells like old gasoline and exhaust fumes up to 3" deep right up to my backdoor after a heavy rain. So far, no government agency, County, State, or Federal will do anything about it except make excuses as to why they can't do anything about it.
