Aqua Water works with Navy to install filtration system By Deirdre Krasula LI Herald (NY) February 20, 2012Aqua New York, the private water company providing water to the Merricks and Bellmores, announced that trace levels of trichloroethylene, or TCE, were detected near one of Aqua's wells on Seaman’s Neck Road in Levittown. The levels were lower than the Department of Health's allowance in drinking water standards.
...As soon as the trace levels of the VOC were detected, the well was shut down in September, Aqua New York President Matt Snyder said. The company did so to "stay ahead of ground water contamination," he added.
TCE likely made it into the ground water when a plume of contaminated water from the former Grumman plant skirted its wells. The Grumman property is 2.5 miles away from Aqua’s Seaman's Neck Road water plant, at the Seaford/Levittown border. In the 1950s, the U.S. Navy and Grumman operated various facilities at the site. Though neither maintains operations at the site, the Navy is held responsible for any future contaminations that may be linked to its operations.
