A Civil Action
In Woburn, people claiming that the drinking water was causing childhood cancer were initially dismissed as cranks. The corporate polluters used their vast resources to stonewall and obscure the truth. Many others in the community thought that the cancer stricken families were simply tearing the community down and hurting property values with their complaints. Ultimately, years after litigation was completed, government sponsored studies confirmed the contaminated drinking water was a major cause of childhood cancer in Woburn. Be amazed by the similarities between this story and our own in Toms River.
