Last chance for chemical tests in Riverside


RIVERSIDE, Ohio (WDTN) – Time is running out for Riverside residents to get their homes tested for dangerous chemicals.

The Environmental Protection Agency is holding a public meeting Wednesday evening to answer any questions residents have.

2 NEWS Investigates first exposed the public health threat in November 2013.

The EPA says cancer causing chemicals, called PCEs, were found in homes.

The source of the contamination has not been found.

The EPA says there are at least 100 homes that still need to sign up for free testing.

The public meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. at Stebbins High School.
