UNIVERSITY CROSSING MONITORING WELLS
A set of three shallow monitoring wells were installed at the University Crossing Development (near Unit Well 14) to observe groundwater quality during site redevelopment. The wells were installed in March of 2012 with MWU paying 50% of the installation costs. The wells will be sampled and analyzed on a quarterly basis for a period of two years. All sampling costs are paid 100% by MWU.
No Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) have been detected in any of the three monitoring wells. Elevated levels of several inorganic compounds exist in the wells (chloride, sodium, and nitrates). These levels, however, do not appear to be increasing as the development progresses.
