(WPTV) — WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - New water tests conducted over the past few months in The Acreage show there are high levels of radioactive material in the water, according to lawsuits recently filed in South Florida.
In the lawsuits, attorney Jack Scarola claims two South Florida companies, Pratt & Whitney and Palm Beach Aggregates, are responsible for the high levels. Business practices led to the alleged radioactive material getting into the groundwater, according to the lawsuit.

Neither company is releasing any comments related to the lawsuits or allegations. But, in a letter from an attorney for Pratt & Whitney sent to Scarola, the company claims the testing is incomplete and contains inaccurate data.
