Some key findings:

  • Detection of high concentrations of benzene, xylenes, gasoline range organics, diesel range organics, and total purgeable hydrocarbons in ground water samples from shallow monitoring wells near pits indicates that pits are a source of shallow ground water contamination in the area of investigation.
  • Inorganic and organic geochemical anomalies in deeper ground water were detected.
  • Elevated levels of dissolved methane in domestic wells generally increase in those wells in proximity to gas production wells.
