Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Bottled water in San Martin (CA)
Water Shipments Resumed to South County Homes With Elevated Contamination Levels

Gilroy - A road flare manufacturer has reinstated free shipments of bottled water to 42 homes in Morgan Hill and San Martin after discovering elevated levels of contaminants in drinking water supplies, according to state water regulators.

Last July, Olin Corporation discontinued shipments of bottled water to roughly 1,200 homes along the edges of a 9.5-mile perchlorate plume extending southeast from its former Tennant Avenue factory. The move hinged on water samples showing that the contaminant, which can cause thyroid dysfunction, had dropped below levels deemed dangerous by state environmental regulators.

Of the 530-plus wells that no longer triggered requirements for free water, 21 have since climbed back into the range of concern set by regulators, according to regulators at the Central Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board.
