The EPA is reporting that in 2010, the Missouri Department of Natural Resources detected trichloroethylene (TCE) in two non-community wells and an irrigation well in Rogersville, Missouri. The EPA came in and conducted testing, and since then have installed 5 water treatment systems in private residences with TCE concentrations above the MCL of 5 parts per billion. The source of the contamination is unknown at this time.
TCE is a colorless manufactured liquid that does not occur naturally in the environment. Long-term exposure to TCE at elevated levels is linked to cancer, as well as liver problems and weakening of the immune system.
