According to IDEM, soil and groundwater near Northwestern Avenue have been affected. Documents from IDEM state it is possible those contaminates may be migrating off-site and impacting air inside homes on Lindberg Road.

The contamination may come from a former dry cleaning business located across the street in the 1970's.

Dagne Hartman lives in one of the homes being tested and said it has been a long and scary process.

"I'm using the water on a regular basis in my home and I drink from the faucet etc. it made me very uncomfortable so I'm like what do you mean where is this coming," questioned Hartman. 

Documents from IDEM state the in-home testing is focused on the air quality and not water.
