The mystery of the posted 16th section land signs on creosote-contaminated property has been solved.
The signs appeared last week on land along Eastside Avenue in Hattiesburg. It's in an area where Leo Watts has been growing a garden for the past 14 years.
The property is owned by the Hattiesburg School District, which recently leased it to a private company. The owner of the company is giving Watts until September 1st to harvest his garden before using it for other purposes.
