Subject: [CPEO-MEF] PERCHLORATE: Halliburton contamination, Duncan, OK
Halliburton confirms Duncan water well contamination, takes corrective action

DUNCAN - Halliburton has detected perchlorate contamination in 18 residential water wells near a site on the north side of Duncan where the company used to perform government contract work, the company announced Thursday.

“Halliburton has made arrangements to supply affected residents with bottled drinking water and, if needed, with a temporary water supply system, at no cost to the residents,” the company said in a news release. “Halliburton will continue providing these temporary solutions until a long-term solution can be implemented.


The contamination was discovered near Halliburton property along Osage Road, where Halliburton employees used to remove and burn spent missile fuel contained in missile casings under a contract with the U.S. Department of Defense, the company said.

Halliburton ceased such activities at the site in 1991, but believes they likely contributed to the contamination, company officials indicated.
