Mulberry Well's Water Treatment System
The aerated water then exits through a series of plastic troughs lined with rocks, which continues aeration of the water. As the water flows downhill, it flows around and over rocks and ridges, and runs off each trough to the next. All of this adds air to help evaporate TCE. The amount of TCE in the air is very small and diluted, and is no longer a health concern.
Routine testing continues to show that TCE remains below the permitted level prior to discharge from the treatment system into the stream. The city of Camdenton is currently investigating groundwater in the vicinity of the Mulberry Well to gain a better understanding of the extent and depth at which the contamination is occurring. This would allow the city and the department to determine the best permanent treatment method to address the TCE contamination, and keep it from spreading to other private or public drinking water wells in the area.
