GFCA Calls for Changes in Proposed Exxon Spill Clean Up Plan

30 Sep 2014 11:56 AM | Phil Pifer (Administrator)

On September 25, GFCA met with the owners of the contaminated old Exxon gas station site and reviewed their pending proposal for additional cleanup of the spreading underground water contamination created by the gasoline additive MTBE in groundwater. Here is the current contamination plume map.



On September 30, GFCA sent a letter to the owners (Fairfax Petroleum) asking them to reevaluate a critical element of their proposal. The owners are proposing a single well for removing contaminated groundwater.  GFCA and its professional consultant believe that 3 wells, situated strategically at different points of the spreading contamination, will do a better job of eliminating contamination, and faster.
