Sick and dying workers question safety of Ogden Superfund site By Matthew D. LaPlante The Salt Lake Tribune (UT) April 25, 2011 Ling Seager is dead.So is Jim Sproul, who sat next to her in an office in the Utah National Guard's Joint Language Training Center. And so is Chris Jensen, who sat beside Sproul.
Across from Seager sat Mike Chen; he survived a brain tumor. A few feet away was Mark Hepper; he's dying.
Megan Cate, Scott Forman, Jackie Leedy, Andy Swatsenbarg - all of them worked in the same small office. All of them are sick. None of them knows why.
Utah National Guard leaders say it's just a "weird coincidence" that so many people who worked in the same office at the center have died or become debilitatingly ill. Their investigation into environmental conditions at the facility, located at a sprawling industrial park in northern Utah, concluded that the office was safe for its workers - even as engineers continue to remove toxic chemicals from the ground surrounding the building in the middle of an Environmental Protection Agency Superfund site.
