Olin should continue bottled water deliveries

Gilroy Dispatch (CA)
May 06, 2004

Olin Corp., the company that has acknowledged its now-closed road flare
factory in south Morgan Hill is the cause of a perchlorate plume snaking
through South County?s aquifers, has disappointed South County residents
yet again.

For a company that promised to be a good neighbor and take its
responsibility seriously (?We take our commitment as an environmentally
responsible company and a good neighbor very seriously,? Rick McClure,
an Olin Corp. project manager, said shortly after the perchlorate
contamination was discovered), its hard to justify Olin's recent
attempts to curtail bottled water delivery to owners of contaminated wells.

 After the California Department of Health Services established a
perchlorate safety level of 6 parts per billion (up from 4 ppb), Olin
speedily sought to discontinue bottled water delivery to approximately
600 well owners.

The Regional Water Quality Control Board quite rightly denied that request.
