EPA study of dumps reveals no cancer cluster answers
Jul 31, 2012
The search goes on for the cause of a cluster of cancer cases among children in the Clyde area. The U.S. EPA began a survey of 14 old dump sites in February this year, taking samples of soil and water. It has released a series of reports on its survey and posted them at epa.gov/region5/cleanup/easternsandusky/index.html. The agency reviewed information from 13 of the 14 sites and did not find any major health threats, said Joshua Singer, a U.S. EPA spokesman. "U.S. EPA did not find contamination at levels that pose a threat to human health and will not take further action at those sites. EPA continues to work on the remaining site," Singer said.
