The previous post looked at the 1.5-year-old effort to divert 1,4-Dioxane in the Nuclear Metals, Inc. (NMI) plume before it can reach the public water supply. This post looks at a longer time frame, and asks whether dioxane levels in the Acton public water supply wells have been getting better or worse over the scale of a decade.
There was standing room only at the Acton Water District special district meeting for the vote on whether to authorize the district to purchase 11.23 acres of land in the groundwater protection zones for the Conant 1 and 2 wells. Green Acton President Debra Simes read Green Acton’s position statement. The vote was unanimous in support of the purchase.
