Whirlpool, land owners seeking agreement for testing

The land’s current owners, Jonathan and Robert Abdoo, and Whirlpool have argued about terms for Whirlpool to carry out further testing under U.S. EPA supervision, but the two sides have agreed to meet on Nov. 29 in an attempt to hammer out a final agreement.

Tests carried out by the U.S. EPA revealed PCBs and heavy metals on the site, located at Township Road 187 and County Road 181 in Green Springs. There has been speculation the find could be linked to the Clyde-area childhood cancer cluster.
