Scientists from the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) with the assistance of the United States Geological Survey (USGS), Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM), and Indiana Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) conducted an Exposure Investigation (EI) in June 2012 to test private well water in 30 Posey County homes.

The purpose of the investigation was to determine the quality of the private well water in the area. Water tested in Posey County during this EI was found to have two or more measures of water quality that exceeded comparison levels.

The Exposure Investigation report is available at the:
Posey County Health Department
126 East Third Street, Room 20
Mount Vernon, IN 47620

The report is available on ATSDR's website at: Private Well Water Sampling to Assess Water Quality Issues
