Agencies move to protect water|
Two districts seek ways to keep Aerojet chemicals out of drinking supplies.
By Bill Lindelof Sacramento Bee March 24, 2005
Two water districts, rocket-engine maker Aerojet and government regulators are moving forward with efforts to protect groundwater supplies in Carmichael and Fair Oaks.
Both Fair Oaks and Carmichael water districts are taking steps to stop plumes of chemicals from reaching groundwater wells they use for residential water.
District managers from both districts told about 60 citizens at a town-hall-style meeting last week that their drinking supplies are clean and safe to drink.
The public meeting also included presentations from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Aerojet.
Some citizens told the panel that they are worried about the spreading plume of groundwater pollutants in Carmichael.
"I am really concerned about the efforts to get ahead of the plume," said Seth Hodges, a Carmichael resident. "I'm also concerned about whether there are enough monitoring wells."
