Air clean in Clyde; cancer cluster remains a mystery

Ohio Environmental Protection Agency officials posted the results of a year-long analysis of Clyde air quality on its website this afternoon.

According to the report: "During the year-long air monitoring study, Ohio EPA detected no elevated levels of VOCs or heavy metals.  Additionally, air quality in the Clyde and Green Springs area complies with the National Ambient Air Quality Standards as established by U.S. EPA for all criteria pollutants (particulate matter, nitrogen dioxide, ozone, carbon monoxide, lead and sulfur dioxide).  

The results mean Clyde air is safe to breathe, but the news offers no new clues as to what might be causing children in the community to get cancer.
