Whirlpool Corporation says a study of the former Whirlpool Park in Green Springs found "no health risk and no evidence of hazardous illegal dumping."
The company says a consultant tested 328 groundwater, surface water, soil, sediment and pool filter samples, looking for a total of 232 individual chemicals.
Whirlpool claims no polychlorinated biphenyls, or PCBs, were found in groundwater samples. The company does admit samples containing PCBs above the level the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency considers safe for residential areas were found in limited areas comprised of fill material near the basketball court and former grist mill, which is consistent with the prior sampling by the U.S. EPA in the area of the basketball court.
The park has been at the center of the investigation into the Clyde Cancer Cluster since the EPA found PCBs there earlier this year. Whirlpool says they're hoping their findings can
provide some closure on the case, but Thomas Bowlus, the attorney representing
the current landowner, says they still have questions.
"I think you need to have a full understanding of
what contaminates are on the property, where they're located, what risks do
they pose, and from our perspective, we're not quite there yet, even though
this report makes it seem like we are," Bowlus said.
