Residents In Little Hocking Speak Out

Little Hocking is one of the communities involved in the testing of residents for C8.

It's also one of the towns where filtration systems for removing C* from drinking water is supposed to be built.

But as we reported last week, there's now a suit pending, claiming DuPont refused to extend a deadline for the construction of that system.

We asked Little Hocking residents Monday whether they're concerned about what that might mean for their water.

"It concerns me that it should have been taken care of eight years ago," says Leroy Blake.

"I'd like to see all of the impurities taken out as possible," says Jeanne Swiger. "I don't think I've contracted anything from C8, but I've only lived here eight years."

Sme people are concerned that could mean more delays in purifying the water, but others believe it also should be done correctly.

"The sooner they can get it done, the better," Swiger says. "But if there's a question about the purity or being done correctly, do it right."
