I'm currently looking at a house to possibly buy in the Maplewood neighborhood (Merril St.). I know there is a history of cancer clusters in the area and I have been looking around for any recent info on whether there are still any lasting effects there. I might buy the house if I can find anything that definitively proves the problem is gone. Anyone know where I could find any info one way or another? Thanks

I did a search here and found this (since I was looking for info as well) to share, //www.city-data.com/forum/152007-post36.html The water supply is from Hemlock Lake. 5 miles, 5+ years, wow. I think I will need to go back to houses we've been looking at and take them off the list. There goes Greece, but what about Irondequoit? It's on the other side of the river.


Other info at the DOH https://www.health.ny.gov/statistics...s/cntymaps.pdf


For info - There seems to be a couple of groups that are making this a priority to make others aware, but saw no data (Brainstormers and the Adult Brain Tumor Network at Strong Memorial Hospital)

Thanks for the info! I was on the fence about the house, but I think its a pass for me now.

I've never heard of problems around Merril St. Mostly it was Rand St. I have a lot of friends that grew up in the Kodavista neighborhood,(behind Red Lobster) and none of them got sick.

Default Kodak cancer clusters

I was house hunting in that area several years ago and ended up looking elsewhere after I discovered that the Irondequoit house I was considering was in the 10 mile emergency planning zone for the Ginna nuclear power plant. Potassium iodide tablets are still provided for residents in that 10 mile zone: [url]https://www.monroecounty.gov/news-2020-08-31-pi[/url]

I wouldn't worry about it. Haven't even heard this mentioned in a while. The only thing I hear are the predator attorneys. I worked at Kodak. They were very pro active in abating hazardous materials.

I think that you need to take a second look at the map that's shown, in the link that YOU attached to your post. The "10 mile radius" falls short of Irondequoit Bay, to the west, therefore ANY property within the town of Irondequoit does NOT fall within that zone............
