And When Your Water Source Is Polluted..........

DEP to Hold Public Hearing, Accept Comments on Bucks County Well Contamination Issue

NORRISTOWN -- The Department of Environmental Protection will accept public comments on a proposal to protect Bucks County residents in Hilltown and Bedminster townships from contaminated well water at 7 p.m., Wednesday, May 5, in the Bedminster Township administration building, 3112 Bedminster Road.

DEP has proposed installing whole-house carbon filtration systems in 35 properties that have been or have the potential to be affected by groundwater contamination in the area of Minsi Trail, Blue School Road and Dublin Pike.

The agency began sampling the area’s wells in February 2002 after a referral from the Bucks County Health Department. The contaminant of concern is trichloroethylene, or TCE.

Those interested in presenting comments at the May 5 hearing should register in advance by calling DEP Community Relations Coordinator Lynda Rebarchak at 484-250-5820.

DEP will accept written comments until June 18. The comments should be sent to David Ewald, HSCA project officer, DEP Southeast Regional Office, 2 E. Main St., Norristown, PA 19401-4915.

DEP is taking this action under the authority of the Hazardous Sites Cleanup Act, which allows the department to investigate and clean up hazardous waste sites.

For more information, visit or call 484-250-5900.

"And When Your Water Source Is Polluted"

Did you write this headline, Jim? Shouldn't it say, "And if your water source is polluted?"

That headline is unfair and misguided.

The water source in this article is polluted and DEP is attempting to find a solution. It is not a matter of IF, it is a matter of WHEN as this water source is POLLUTED.

Your headline makes the reader think that their water IS going to be polluted in Potter County. I'm sure you meant it to be taken that way too.

Just ask those folks in Watrous about bad water. They know all about it.

Yes the blog owner is excercising his right to free speech. He has provided us all a wonderful place to bitch and moan about our lives because we are all pathetic. What would ever happen if the world were happy for one day? All your heads would blow up because you wouldnt have anything to whine about.
