Perchlorate levels continue to fall in South County By Michael Moore Morgan Hill Times (CA) September 2, 2009As of the end of June, only nine domestic wells in southern Santa Clara County are contaminated with higher than acceptable levels of perchlorate, a potentially harmful chemical that leached into local groundwater from a site owned and operated by road flares manufacturer Olin Corp.
That's down from an estimate of more 1,000 local wells found to be contaminated with toxic levels of the chemical in 2001.
A report presented at a recent meeting of the Perchlorate Community Advisory Group showed that progress continues on the company's efforts to clean up the drinking water supply.
Officials from area regulatory agencies are still working on ways to more accurately identify contaminated areas of the vast groundwater sub-basin below Morgan Hill and San Martin, and a pipeline system to hasten a thorough cleanup.
