Government Seeks Data on Chemical Plume in Odenton

The federal government will install wells to test for groundwater contamination in Odenton later this year as part of an effort to determine the scope of chemical pollution stemming from Fort Meade.

Officials from the nearby Army base plan to install three wells later this year, and perhaps an additional four more in 2012, in order to learn how far chemical plumes have traveled. Groundwater contamination from the chemicals trichloroethylene and tetrachloroethylene are believed to stem from a series of former industrial sites on base. Officials said they know the width and depth of the chemical plume, but not the length.
