Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Olid (San Martin, CA) seeks to reduce alternate water
Olin Looks to Cork Water Delivery to Some Residents

Morgan Hill - The Olin Corp. has applied to stop bottled water delivery
to the users of 78 perchlorate-contaminated wells in San Martin.

The application follows a finding made earlier this year by the State
Water Resources Control Board that the company need not provide water to
residents whose wells test at or below 6 parts per billion, the state?s
public health goal for the contaminant.

Perchlorate is a by-product of rocket fuel and road flares shown in some
tests to disrupt thyroid function. Since 2002, Olin 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.
