Subject: [CPEO-MEF] "Some bottled water delivery will end" at San Martin (CA) perchlorate site
Some bottled water delivery will end in SM

By Matt King Gilroy Dispatch (CA) May 20, 2005

Gilroy - Residents in San Martin who get their water from wells that test below the state’s public health goal for perchlorate will no longer receive bottled water.

Since 2002, the Olin Corp. has been providing water to residents whose wells test as low as 2 to 4 parts per billion, at the direction of the Central Coast Regional Water Control Board. Earlier this year, the state water board said that the regional board "abused its discretion" by forcing Olin to replace water testing below the public health goal of 6 parts per billion.

According to the order finalized Thursday, Olin can discontinue bottled water delivery for wells that test below the health goal for four consecutive quarters.

Sylvia Hamilton, chairwoman of the Perchlorate Community Advisory Group in San Martin, said she's disappointed by the decision, but ready to move ahead with cleanup.
