Erwin, Tenn., area residents have filed a lawsuit alleging they suffered serious injury or property damage because of toxic radioactive substances in the environment from Nuclear Fuel Services (NFS) nuclear materials processing facility. The putative class action Adkins, et al. v. W.R. Grace & Company includes any person who lived or worked in the Erwin area between 1957 and the present and experienced property damage or was diagnosed with severe or fatal illnesses, including numerous types of cancer.
The plaintiffs claim they were exposed to radioactive, hazardous and toxic substances released into the nearby air, water and soil due to, among other charges, gross negligence on the part of NFS and numerous other named defendants. Erwin Tennessee is just across the state line from Mitchell County.
