Residents voice concerns about groundwater contamination near former
Willow Grove base
By Mark D. Marotta 21st Century Media News Service/Montgomery News (PA) June 17, 2015HORSHAM - Audience members’ concerns and questions about groundwater contamination in the area of the former Willow Grove base were front and center at the Restoration Advisory Board’s June 10 meeting.
Several dozen members of the public attended the meeting held at the Horsham Township Public Library. According to the public notice for the meeting, which was the 57th the RAB had held over the years, its purpose was "to discuss comments or concerns that the community and RAB members may have regarding environmental issues at the former Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base (NAS JRB) Willow Grove and the former Air Force Reserve Station (ARS), Willow Grove."
As Willie Lin, RAB co-chairman and environmental coordinator with the Navy Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) office, provided an update on the status of radiological surveys on the former base, a woman in the audience asked about how long groundwater contamination in the area had been known about. Lin replied that he would address that topic later in the meeting.
