WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The Indiana Department of Environmental Management is testing the extent of contamination at two homes on Lindberg Road in West Lafayette.
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.
