See how toxic waste pits built by Texaco (now Chevron) around the company's oil drilling sites in Ecuador are designed to pollute, and continue to spread oil contamination in the Amazon rainforest environment. Amazon Watch's Mitch Anderson & Amazon Defense Coalition's Donald Moncayo visit a large waste pit at 'Agua Rico 4' oil well in northeastern Ecuador and illustrate how an overflow pipe allows toxins to flow out of an abandoned toxic waste pit when it rains (which it frequently does) and into nearby streams and rivers depended upon by thousands of local residents for drinking and bathing.
