From KOAA.com (Greg Dingrando):

Security-Widefield residents are in the midst of filing a massive lawsuit concerning contaminated water. About a month ago, the area’s water supply was found to have high levels of PFC’s, contaminates linked to certain kinds of cancers.

McDivitt Law Firm received calls from people concerned about their health and their property values and decided to take on the case. Mike McDivitt told News 5 that is it unclear who the affected residents will be suing, as the contamination remains under investigation.

McDivitt said it will be an extremely tough case to win, but the more people they get on board, the better the chances, especially if they’re up against the government or a large manufacturer.

“Those types of defendants who should be held accountable are very large and very well healed. When we get strength in numbers it presents a force front that they cannot ignore,” McDivitt said.
