ATSDR Report issued in groundwater contamination problem in Village of Crestwood, Illinois

We previously blogged that vinyl chloride had been contaminating the water supply for years, the Village of Crestwood, Illinois knew it, but nothing was done. While the IEPA said that there was no risk, the EPA had disagreed stating that there is no safe level of vinyl chloride, calling it a Group A Carcinogen, meaning there is a definite link to cancer.

By way of update, on March 5, 2009, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services published an ATSDR Report concluding that there is definite contamination and that further study is needed to determine the extent.

We will be keeping an eye on this for developments. While I do not currently represent anyone involved with this site, I do represent hundreds of similarly situated people around the country in various contamination and other environmental litigation cases.
