When seven production wells operated by a Southern California water purveyor reported concentrations of hexavalent chromium and perchlorate above regulatory limits for drinking water, a multiagency effort was conducted to identify sources of chemicals of concern.
A Southern California regulatory agency suspected that illegal disposal of perchlorate had impacted the soil and groundwater of a residential property located in Barstow, California. A groundwater investigation project was conducted at a suspected source of perchlorate site, and extended 1.5 miles offsite. The groundwater investigation project fully delineated the extension of perchlorate impacted groundwater and identified remediation alternatives.
