Testing will begin today, according to a news release from a law firm hired by the families.
Joel Hebdon, an environmental engineer and a specialist in hazardous and nuclear waste policy, sustainability and environmental program management, will conduct the tests.
"Mr. Hebdon will be doing dust particulate testing in various attics in homes in the Clyde area in hopes of locating a timeline of airborne particles that may solve the mystery as to what has been causing the recognized childhood cancer cluster in Clyde," attorney Alan W. Mortensen stated.
