Grand Island fights groundwater contamination
May 18, 2010
Groundwater contamination caused by a plume of solvents dumped in the 1970s is closing private drinking-water wells in Grand Island
, Nebraska. The slow-moving but still-spreading area of contamination is being combated by a system that pumps out groundwater and vaporizes the solvents, but it shows just how long-term the effects of contamination can be. The EPA says the contamination was first discovered in 1999
Shallow wells can be served by Patterson vertical-turbine pumps
. Please feel free to contact us
