Water wells will close over any jet fuel contamination By John Fleck Albuquerque Journal (NM) June 19, 2014Albuquerque's municipal water utility will shut down drinking water wells if any contamination from a Kirtland Air Force Base fuel spill is detected, no matter how low the levels, the agency's board of directors decided Wednesday evening.
"The acceptable level in our water is zero," said County Commissioner Debbie O'Malley, a member of the Albuquerque Bernalillo County Water Utility Authority board of directors.
"Our charge is to make sure the water is clean," said City Councilor Rey Garduño, also a member of the water utility's board.
The board's position, contained in a policy resolution that was approved unanimously, makes official what agency staff members have been saying for at least four years - that any amount of ethylene dibromide, the most dangerous chemical in the contamination, no matter how small, would be cause to shut down the affected well.
