One of Riverhead Water District’s newest wells offline, needs costly system to remove contaminant perchlorate
by Denise Civiletti Riverhead Local (NY) January 5, 2015One of Riverhead Water District's newest wells is producing water contaminated with perchlorate, a chemical known to affect the human endocrine system and considered by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency a "likely human carcinogen."
Well 16, located off Edwards Avenue north of Route 25 in Calverton, completed in 2011 at a total cost of more than $2 million, has been taken offline pending installation of a treatment system expected to cost as much as $555,000.
...The source of the perchlorate contamination is not known for sure but the water district engineers believe fertilizers are to blame, Walter said.
