Subject: [CPEO-MEF] PERCHLORATE: Duncan, Oklahoma meeting about Halliburotn site
Contaminant found in Duncan water wells
Water well contamination on the north side of Duncan is causing concern, drawing attention from Erin Brockovich and others

July 28, 2011

DUNCAN - Amy Calloway wonders how long her family will need to stay in a hotel where the water is safe. She worries even more if her grandson who swam in the family pool and drank their well water will develop normally.

Her neighbor, Russell Wilkerson, wonders whether his wife's parathyroid disease could be traced back to years of drinking their contaminated well water. Like some of their neighbors, they use spring water hauled in by Halliburton for drinking and cooking, while trying to avoid the well water they've used for decades.

Erin Brockovich, who became a movie legend for discovering evidence of a carcinogen in groundwater in a California town, returned to Los Angeles on Wednesday after meeting Tuesday night with about 400 residents here concerned about the ammonium perchlorate discovered in their water.
