Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Furlong, Pennsylvania groundwater contamination
Public water could replace tainted wells

The Intelligencer (PA)
November 28, 2008

Almost 40 Furlong property owners whose wells are or could become contaminated with toxic chemicals could soon get public water, courtesy of the state Department of Environmental Protection.

The DEP for about 20 years has provided property owners with carbon filters for their wells, but officials have sought a more permanent and cost-effective solution to the problem. DEP officials now propose installing a public water line for the 38 properties in Doylestown Township and Buckingham.
