The City of Camdenton is constantly pumping the Mulberry Well and sending the water downhill to a tributary in an effort to clear all TCE from it. As it runs down the hill, the TCE dissipates and there is no trace of it by the time it reaches the tributary. However, this has residents concerned about the air quality. Lenny Siegel with the Center for Public Environmental Oversight came to Camdenton and conducted studies of the area. He says people should be more concerned about the inside of buildings, as they suck up contamination from the subsurface and contain it.
Siegel says the biggest concerns are the Modine Plant itself and residences nearby.
