Shoppes to pay water cleanup Perchlorate contamination
By Donna Boynton WORCESTER TELEGRAM & GAZETTE (MA) August 23, 2006
MILLBURY - The developers of the Shoppes at Blackstone Valley have agreed to cover nearly all the expenses Aquarion Water Co. incurred from perchlorate contamination two years ago.
Speaking to the Board of Selectmen last night, Aquarion's Michelle Desorcy said the mall developers, Route 146 Millbury LLC, have said they will reimburse Aquarion for 95 percent of the cost associated with the perchlorate contamination and associated cleanup.
Aquarion tested its wells in 2004 to make sure that it complied with the state's guidelines for perchlorate, and those tests revealed that two wells near the Blackstone River, known as Jacques wells Nos. 1 and 2, had unacceptably high levels of perchlorate, a chemical used in making rocket fuel and explosives.
