my family lived in the Oaks subdivision in the early/mid seventies. We had well water and to my knowledge there have been two people in that subdivision that have either died from cancer (one man died and a lady had breast cancer). I don't know how many there have been since that time. I believe all that are involved in this situation should bring a class action suite against the owners who ran and should have cleaned up the site long before now. Has thare been any talk regarding this? It is mind boggling to know that you are sitting on a time bomb and that your children who are now 29 and 37 may be at exposure to cancer from this obvious hidden problem. I for one am mad as h--- and woudl like to see all of those involved sued and everyone that lives or has lived in the site of this atrosity pay!

Hi Linda,

My name is Daniel Coulter and I'm currently looking into the CTS site contamination after our lawfirm ( http://www.weitzlux.com ) got an email from a concerned citizen. I would be interested in hearing what else you know about the people who lived in the Oaks subdivision.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
