Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Olin's appeal denied
Olin should provide water

The Central Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board has denied Olin Corp.’s appeal of an order that it must provide free bottled water to residents with perchlorate-contaminated wells.

The next step is a hearing before the state water board on Olin’s request for a stay on providing water. The company has appealed an April 7, 2004, order from the regional board.

The process is expected to take a year before a final decision is made.

Meanwhile, those with wells testing at 4 parts per billion and above will continue to be eligible for the bottled water.

Olin had wanted to provide the water only to those testing at 6 ppb and higher, reflecting the state Public Health Goal of 6 ppb set in March. A PHG is the level the state considers not posing a significant health risk to humans.
