Series III. Health and Environmental Testing

Scope and Content Notes:

The possibility of compensation for the residents of Yukon for health damages rested mainly on the results of a DER-commissioned health study of South Huntingdon Township, in which Yukon is located. This study was conducted from 1986 to 1988. Several other tests and surveys were conducted around the Yukon area in order to determine the extent of pollution coming from the dump site and the effects of the pollution on the health of residents. Some were conducted by the DER and some were commissioned by CRY from independent contractors in hopes that the results would provide more conclusive evidence to support the group's claims in court. Additional documentation of other environmental tests can be found in series IV.
