Petroleum Coke Neighborhoods-9 [Duplicate]

In this Oct. 25, 2013 photo, Susanna Gomez, 37, second from right, puts a sock on the foot of her 5-year-old daughter Mariah Burgos as she talks about living near the the Calumet River and industrial sites on Chicago's southeast side where petroleum coke, or petcoke, is stored. Listening to the interview is Gomez's 3-year-old grandson Aerien Pacheco with family friend Eva Nevarez. The grainy black byproduct of oil refining has sparked a new wave of environmental concerns. For Gomez and others in this working-class neighborhood, the issue comes down to one thing: their children's health. (AP Photo/Charles Rex Arbogast)
