I read about a high rate of multiple sclerosis in Wellington. Is the reported MS cluster in a particular neighborhood? What is the source of municipal drinking water?

Yes, there is a specific area, although not all in that area. The area around the highschool, the grouped community behind there, is the area with highest incident. I bought a home in 2000 in Wellington, heard this, and decided to check it out. I do know that back at the end of Jones Street area there used to be a landfill dump that they ended up covering over. According to officials, after their investigation, that was not the source. After their "findings", they basically said there is no cause for concern in Wellington because there is not anything there being the cause. Guess it is just coincidence?? Or is it

wellington has a reservoir at the southwest corner of town located right near where they used to dump foundry sand. i have also heard that they used to use this toxic sand for fill during home construction on the west side of town before it was banned. i would wonder if this has anything to do with the high cases of m.s.

I was diagnosed with MS about 30 years ago. My family spent a lot of summers on my grandma's farm in Lagrange. We went to Wellington a lot for church, etc. I have always wondered about the water we drank on the farm and my diagnosis. Other members in our family tree, that spent time on the farm, also have mild forms of neurologic disorders.
I have been watching and reading the news about this with great concern. Please continue to chat on this! Don't let the research/investigations die.

What is the location of the former dumping ground near the reservoir (streets)? Was the toxic sand dumped into a pit? What area on the west side of town was reportedly filled using toxic sand?

Many schools across the country were built on top of closed dumpsites. Do you know the previous land-use of the high school? What end of Jones Street was the landfill located (cross-street)?

i have ms and i'm from wellington. i disagree with one of the replies..in regards to area, the sw part of town-particularly prospect st./erie st./wheeling ave.-is the worst. it's believed by many that it's because of the old foundry on the same property as the drinking water.i grew up on prospect st. and had NEVER heard about the tie between the two[wellington and ms] until i was getting tested for it.

as for the drinking water, it is supplied by a resevoir, however, it's an upground resevoir, making the claim that it's associated with the water invalid. i personally believe it to be atmospheric, and subterrestrial.

i've personally read a report on the findings of that[foundry] property and was more than disgusted with their findings. they found 3 or 4 ponds on the property with the banks on all of them stained black AND they found an unlicensed, unregulated landfill. after decades of dumping who knows what, wellington is one big cesspool.

Thank you for the information. Is the report regarding the foundry available online? Where was the foundry property located? Do you know the location of the unregulated landfill?

jaysun420 - Are you referring to the Health Consultation report dated March 17,2005? I just found it online and will read it tonight. Let me know of any more reports that refer to the former Sterling Foundry, Erie Street Landfill, or any other landfills in the area.

I think the cause of MS and other illnesses may be from chemicals in the Erie Street Landfill and surrounding area. The land beneath the above ground reservoir may also have been used as a landfill. Does anyone know the previous land-use of the reservoir property prior to it's construction in 1970s? Has any government agency conducted a 100-year chain of title of the landfill and reservoir properties to provide previous ownership?

Dr. Woodrow Monte argues that the cause is methanol. Can anyone confirm that or speak to the specific chemicals that polluted this community?

As I mentioned in my last post, I think the contamination is caused by chemicals in a former dumpsite.

I am from Wellington, not currently living there. I was had onset of MS soon after I left the area. Is anyone else wondering if McCormick with the mold, lead paint and aesbestos could be a source? I lived closer to Brighton but we all attended the same schools.

I think finding out the locations of all the old dumpsites is key to finding out the cause (or causes) of MS in Wellington.

I think that it is time that the varying authorities examined the various areas around the world which have clusters of Multiple sclerosis I'm quite sure that a common environmental denominator will provide the key to the trigger of the disease.
