Cancer Cluster water testing

Posted by Tricia Dunn - email

(WFLX) - The Department of Environmental Protection will be heading out on Tuesday to take samples from the water in the Acreage, where there is a potential cancer cluster.

All the homes in the Acreage have well water so the D-E-P will be taking samples from about fifty wells throughout a ten square mile area, they will also be sampling water from child care facilities in the area.

Once the samples are collected, they will go to a laboratory in Tallahassee for analysis. The results will be evaluated and the findings will be ready in six to eight weeks.
