Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Monterey County Herald Article on Monterey Peninsula
This is the same thing that happen here at Aberdeen Proving Grounds with
the Perryman water field. Fire fighting training at Phillips Airfield on
Aberdeen Proving Grounds had contaminated the ground water and it was being
drawn into the local water supply. A filter station was build to clean the
water from two of the wells before going to the local treatment plant, the
problem was raised again when the water plume was noted to be moving off
post and more wells were in danger of being contaminated. It was decided
that the best way to treat the water was to treat all the wells before
sending it the the local water treatment plant. The design of the treatment
plant called for it to be placed outside the boundary of AGP. At first the
US Army refused the paid the cost saying it was not a problem to the
community. It took the Aberdeen Proving Grounds Superfund Citizen Coalition
(APGSCC), Restoration Advisory Board (RAB), and  a letter writing campaign
to the State officials for action to be taken by the military. This was
talked about here at cpeo around a month ago.
