Just because you don’t have a stream or lake on your property doesn’t mean you’re safe from groundwater contamination. Here are some potential sources you should be aware of:
- Storage Tanks – It is estimated that there are more than ten million aboveground and underground fuel storage tanks in the United States. Leaking oil tanks are a major source of contamination.
- Septic Systems – Improper design, installation, location and lack of maintenance can cause the leakage of
bacteria, viruses and household chemicals into the soil and eventually contaminate groundwater.
- Uncontrolled Hazardous Waste – Contaminants from barrels and containers at these sites, leach into the surrounding soil and eventually reach groundwater.
- Landfills – Contaminants can work through cracks in the protective bottom of the landfill.
- Chemical and Road Salts – The increasing use of lawn chemicals and road treatment chemicals threatens the safety of groundwater as these chemicals run-off the ground surface and into drinking supplies.
