The Environmental Protection Agency conducted an investigation in the Hemlock, Michigan area to determine if a chemical contamination problem existed there. This investigation was prompted by complaints of human and animal health problems in that area, which were alleged to be due to toxicants in aquifers used for drinking water supplies. In this study approximately ninety samples, including water, soil, animal tissues, and household dust samples, were analyzed for a wide variety of parameters. Tests conducted on the samples included arsenic, cadmium, lead, bromide, chloride, PCBs, PBBs, pesticides, dioxin, and GC/MS scans for organics. No evidence of a chemical contamination problem in the Hemlock, Michigan area was found.
