There is concern that the leachate has reached the local ground water, which is a drinking water source for the community, a food source from its plentiful fish, and a recreational waterway where people swim. Community residents are convinced that there is a cancer cluster in their community, which is related to this contamination. Your team will need to define at least two chemicals that have been found in the leachate and their associated risks for being related to a cancer cluster."
