Medical officer of health assures residents in area of former
Outboard Marine plant that trichloroethylene levels were very low in
By Brendan Wedley Peterborough Examiner (ONT) June 27, 2012A chemical used at the city’s former Outboard Marine Corp. lingers in groundwater beneath nearby homes causing health concerns for residents, who were given an opportunity to ask questions at a public meeting Tuesday night.
