Famed environmental activist Erin Brockovich and her team continue to investigate cancer concerns in Fridley, according to a new project page dedicated to the city on Brockovich's website, the Patch reported.
Brockovich held a town hall meeting in Fridley last summer after state numbers showed a cancer rate more than 7 percent higher than the Minnesota average.
Fridley is also home to six of 25 superfund sites in the state, where industrial pollution was left behind by departed or defunct companies.
A number of residents have raised concerns the two are directly related.
"Fridley is one of the worst Superfund sites in the country," the website reads. She maintains the chemicals could be posing a significant threat to the health of Fridley residents.
In January, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency held a meeting to help community members create a Community Advisory Group to act as a connection between the EPA and the community.
Not everyone believes cancer rates are linked to the superfund sites. State health officials say test results show water meets federal standards and increased cases of lung cancer are likely attributed to higher smoking rates in Fridley.
