In order to facilitate a prompt response to concerns about area groundwater quality, DENR is planning to conduct a receptor survey for water wells at all properties within a 1/2 mile radius of the Champion Finishing and Square D sites.
· 376 parcels, including mobile home parks and other parcels with multiple street addresses, have been identified in the subject area.
· We are in the process of obtaining information to identify addresses without a municipal water connection for the initial phase of the survey, followed by sampling of any active wells identified.
· We anticipate that follow-up will include a door-to-door check of all parcels/addresses in case some owners have wells in addition to a municipal connection.
We are hoping to begin sending letters to property owners tomorrow.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
