More tests to be done on Whirlpool Park

Whirpool Park

The contaminated Whirlpool Park will be tested more next month as officials try to pinpoint the cause of the Clyde cancer cluster.

The Ohio EPA has approved the company's plans to investigate the soil, surface water and other areas of the park.

The US EPA found 9 feet of sludge contaminated with cancer causing toxins last year during its investigation into a childhood cancer cluster in the Clyde area.

The next testing will take place sometime in May.,

Nearly 40 young people who lived in a 12-mile radius of Whirlpool Park have been diagnosed with cancer since the mid-1990s.
