UM: Saginaw Forest

A post on the Saginaw Forest Caretakers’ Blog describes drilling underway to gather water samples to test for 1,4 dioxane: “At every 10′ of drilling, a water sample is taken (when the new section isn’t in silt) for later testing. If a water sample comes back with new evidence of 1,4 dioxane in it (i.e., the existing wells aren’t monitoring at the depth where it was found), another well might be sunk to monitor that depth. However, it isn’t expected that new contamination will be found.” The post includes photos of drill bits being used. [Source]
