Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Marshfield fireworks and perchlorate
DPW water tests show all is well

The water is safe and the fireworks are a go.

This was the decision from Marshfield Selectmen last week after hearing
the results of a test for chemicals in a well near the Marshfield Fairgrounds.

"There's no empirical data suggesting it's warranted to stop the
fireworks," Selectman Michael Maresco said. "Right now we need more testing."

Board of Public Works commissioners had raised concerns the fireworks
could increase the amount of perchlorate - a potentially dangerous
chemical - in a well near the Fairgrounds. Recent tests showed a spike
in perchlorate in that well following the Fourth of July fireworks
display held there.
