Officials said that there is no imminent threat of the contamination getting into the city water supply, and that currently it “does not pose any current significant risk to anyone.”
A feasibility plan should be finalized by the end of this year. By August or September 0f 2017 a cleanup plan will be proposed. There are several solutions that could be considered:
- Cleaning up the source of the contamination by removing the mass.
- Stopping the movement of the plume.
- Reducing the intensity of the concentration of the plume.
Once a cleanup plan is approved, local officials will go back to court to meditate with the federal government funding.]]>
