The Journal Times is reporting that residents went to a public meeting regarding the molybdenum contamination in water and were not given straight answers as to when they can stop drinking bottled water. The data shows that 19 of 77 private wells in the affected area showed high levels of molybdenum. At low levels, it is a dairy nutrient. At high levels it is toxic.
A follow up article by the Journal Times links the groundwater contamination to We Energies Coal Ash landfills as the source. The area is included in a recent study funded jointly by the Environmental Integrity Project, EarthJustice and the Sierra Club.
