Olin to appeal new order on bottled water

The state agency in charge of the perchlorate contamination cleanup in
South Valley groundwater issued an order Wednesday telling Olin Corp.
that it must supply uninterrupted bottled water to residents with
contaminated wells.

An Olin representative said Thursday that the company will appeal part
of the order.

The order issued Wednesday by the state Regional Water Quality Control
Board in San Luis Obispo covers both interim and long-term actions,
addressing who will continue to receive free bottled water - residents
on wells testing at least 4 parts per billion - and which well-owners
must be provided with a long-term alternative source of water - those
with wells registering 10 parts per billion or more.

The alternative source would likely be a well-head treatment system.
Olin also is required to submit detailed plans for the uninterrupted
water supply options for wells testing from 4 to 9.9 ppb, almost 400
wells in tests performed a year ago. The same round of tests showed
about 20 wells with levels above 10 ppb.

Olin?s Rick McClure said the company will appeal having to provide
bottled water for residents with 4-5 ppb since the California Department
of Health Services in March set 6 ppb as the Public Health Goal.
