DEPUE — The village of DePue announced a new initiative in its quest to restore Lake DePue and remove numerous hazardous materials from the surrounding area that endanger human health.
In 2001, a Texas Tech University study examined the linkage between multiple sclerosis cases in DePue and exposure to heavy metals. It found that the incidence of MS was 10-times greater than the normal population. Further studies were recommended.
