At a cost to the town of more than $300,000, Oak Grove has been purchasing water from a neighboring community for most of the last decade.(1) But now the town is being forced to develop its own water supply-an expensive undertaking for such a small community.
One option Oak Grove is now considering is treating the existing water by removing the trichloroethylene (TCE), one of the harmful pollutants currently in the water, and then chlorinating it.
Since it is not known who caused the pollution, Oak Grove is counting on the Superfund to ensure that the town has water that is safe to drink.
