What are My Health Risks?

For Soil | There is little to no health risk unless there is contact with skin or ingestion of contaminated soil.
For Groundwater:

  • If you are connected to a Public Water System (PWS) there is little to no risk of impact from the site because the water is filtered through the PWS for residential and business use. | View Drinking Water Notices > 
  • If you have a private well in the vicinity of the site, we encourage you to test the well water. Not sure what to test for? | Learn More >
