GROVE CITY, MERCER COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA
Based on available information, PADOH determined human exposure pathways have been eliminated and the groundwater at the site no longer presents a public health hazard. Area residents are either connected to public water supply or appropriate actions are being taken to prevent human exposure from occurring in the future. These actions include plume containment and continuous monitoring of residential wells that are not connected to the public water supply. In addition, no children were reported to have lived in the residence with the contaminated well. Even if children visit the home occasionally one or twice a week, adverse health effects from past exposures are not expected to occur based on the level of contamination.
- Continue using public water which has been supplied to area residents.
- Continue monitoring wells near the site that are still being used for private water supplies.
