The first question that I would ask is , is there any Fracking in the area. Where does there ground water/dring supply come from. The article was
somewhat vaugue but I noticed mentioned there was haz. chem plants in the area with EPA cleanup mandates.
I would go past Erin Brokovich and go with sampling testing from the University of Oklahoma OR the University of Kansas.
There is an excellent university lab in Texas that could do this as well.
Don't go just on what Erin thinks get a university grad level student group to study the samples.
most govenmental studies rely on just numbers crunching from agency stat sheets, in a small case study like this I would get a group together and do a
' door to door' study. the illness numbers end up being more accurate with med records.
Get maps of ALL EPA and OTHER contaminted sites and what the status is on each site.
Track all rivers, streams and 'dry beds in conjunction with the sites in questions.
Look up the companies who have been around a while to see what they buried onsite and comapre it to the water sites.
Check with the county health department to get their stats on sickness. [good luck on that one, best bet is interviewing local doctors]
Get a map going of the people/families who are sick and compare it to the water maps and proxitmiy to contaminante sites.
If the county or city had concerns about the water to that extent, they would have it anylized by outside sources and if its not listed on the
website, an FOIA can get it.
And last but not least.....'follow the money honey' That can be the absolute MOST frustrating and dangerous part.
Been there, done that so to speak and its not a fun road
