Water quality at Delaware Guard site called into question Artesian thinks base pollutants have seeped into Airport Park wellfield By JEFF MONTGOMERY Wilmington News Journal (DE) November 14, 2010Delaware environmental officials have widened an investigation into the spread of chemical pollutants under New Castle Airport, after the state's largest private water supplier expressed fears that the pollution has contaminated two public supply wells near Hares Corner.
Joseph A. DiNunzio, senior vice president with Artesian Resources, said the Defense Department has not adequately addressed groundwater con- tamination at the Delaware Air National Guard site near New Castle.
Artesian believes fuel and solvent compounds from spills as long ago as the 1940s have seeped underground from the base to Artesian's Airport Industrial Park wellfield southwest of U.S. 13 and Frenchtown Road.
"Our customers have borne these costs," DiNunzio said. "If there are responsible parties and the documentation is clear -- and that work needs to be completed, in this case -- the responsible parties owe our customers all that they have paid all these years."
