A potential class action lawsuit is in the works in the wake of water contamination for the town of Blades.

A law firm says it has been approached by number of residents who have experienced health problems.

WBOC reports these included thyroid issues and pregnancy complications.

The water was found to have contained an elevated level of PFC’s.

The attorneys say they are now trying to determine who was responsible or what caused the contamination.

The legal action comes as the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control is conducting its own probe which has expanded its well testing to find the source of the contamination.
