KSAL StaffApril 22, 2016

  • 362 soil borings
  • 258 temporary monitoring wells installed
  • 70 permanent monitoring wells installed
  • 1,627 soil, groundwater, and air samples tested
  • 13,637 feet drilled
  • 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.]]>
