More Well Tests, More Heavy Metals

Having found dangerously high levels of heavy metals in wells in Gambrills and Crofton, the Health Department is now expanding its testing effort into Odenton. As has been discussed here previously, well tests in west Anne Arundel have revealed elevated levels of arsenic, cadmium, and thallium in the water there.

Just for some context. Here's a map of the Constellation fly ash site, the Magothy aquifer, and the surrounding area.

Crofton First will be having a meeting about the proposed fly ash regulations with the state (speakers from Maryland Department of the Environment will be there) tomorrow night, February 19th at 7pm at the Village Commons Room in Waugh Chapel.
