CLYDE, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Several members of the families of children who have died or been diagnosed with cancer in what has become known as the "Clyde Children's Cancer Cluster" have retained their own team of environmental experts to begin various environmental testing this week.

Beginning on Monday, environmental engineer Joel Hebdon will begin various tests in the Clyde area. Hebdon is a specialist in hazardous and nuclear waste policy, sustainability and environmental program management. He has executive-level experience as a program director with Department of Energy and Department of Defense. He is also an expert in earned value, project controls, ES&H, quality assurance, RCRA/CERCLA, DOE project management.  

Hebdon will be doing dust particulate testing in various attics in homes in hopes of locating a timeline of airborne particles that may solve the mystery as to what has been causing the recognized childhood cancer cluster in Clyde. Hebdon and assistant Michael Wise will be dressed in full hazardous materials outfits, including dust masks, for testing.  

On Tuesday, Hebdon will be taking samples of the sludge at the bottom of the Clyde Reservoir. 

On Wednesday, Hebdon, in cooperation with representatives from Clyde City, will be taking samples from the lime sludge at the Clyde Water Treatment plant.
