News Release Citizens for Safe Water Around Badger August 11, 2014 CSWAB Reviews Groundwater Results for Badger AmmoCitizens for Safe Water Around Badger (CSWAB) has completed a review of recently-released environmental reports by the U.S. Army at Badger Army Ammunition Plant. Army testing indicates that groundwater quality is improving in certain areas in and around the former munitions site and is showing persistent or new problems in others. We have published a series of new groundwater quality maps showing these areas. They are posted at end of this update.
Of the 69 residential wells tested by the U.S. Army in 2013, no exceedances of the health-based Wisconsin Groundwater Enforcement Standard (ES) were reported. Low levels of the explosive dinitrotoluene (DNT), below the ES, were detected in several residential wells located southeast of the plant near Gruber’s Grove Bay. Health officials said that these private wells are considered safe to use.
