Cancer Causing Chemicals Threaten Well Water in Oregon

As many as 300 private wells in Lebanon, Oregon may have been polluted by contaminated groundwater, the Democrat Herald reports. According to the Department of Environmental Quality, the groundwater is contaminated with the cancer-causing industrial solvents trichloroethylene (TCE) and tetrachloroethylene (PCE).

For about ten years, the DEQ has worked to clean up three dry cleaning sites in the area known to use the solvents. Recent tests revealed that the groundwater has contaminated some of the private wells in the area. The DEQ plans to test approximately 300 wells to determine whether the contamination has spread. If so, residents will be offered an alternate supply source including free hookups to the city's water system.

While I do not currently represent anyone involved with this site, I do represent hundreds of similarly situated people around the country in various landfill and other environmental litigation cases.
