Two lawsuits have been filed on behalf of the people of Cameron, Missouri, a town hit by a series of brain tumors. Testing on environmental samples collected in Cameron revealed the presence of arsenic and lead at the old Rockwood Industries plant. Class action lawsuits were filed naming companies that operated on the sites where chemicals turned up. One lawsuit requests medical monitoring and the other lawsuit is for property damage. The value of the property owned by people in Cameron was alleged to have been adversely affected by the developments there. The Environmental Protection Agency says more testing is scheduled, including water sampling at a group of homes and at a nearby quarry. The EPA is also trying to pinpoint the site of an old city landfill for more testing. Also, samples will be taken in an area once used by rail cars.
