Environmental spill could hinder Tampa's key West River project

Sitting in the cab of a backhoe, Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn on Thursday morning clawed a first chunk out of North Boulevard Homes, a dilapidated public housing complex. The demolition will make room for the ambitious West River project, a $200 million mixed-income community of offices, stores and 2,178 homes, many with views of the downtown skyline. But clearing away concrete may be easier than dealing with a mess that lies below the surface: a sludgy plume of toxic groundwater that has been spreading for decades, according to state records.
