Well 8 and Madison Kipp
Degreasing solvents were used at Madison-Kipp Corporation for many years. This use has resulted in soil and groundwater contamination in the vicinity of the plant. A substantial plume of PCE-contaminated groundwater has been found under the factory. More information is available on the WDNR website.
Currently neither PCE (tetrachloroethylene) nor TCE (trichloroethylene) have been detected at Well 8. The Water Utility had planned to install a monitoring or sentry well near Elmside Circle Park in 2012; however, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, which is overseeing the investigation at Madison-Kipp, has advised the utility to delay installation until more of that investigation work is complete. When installed, a monitoring well will provide additional insights into the quality of groundwater located between the contamination source and the municipal well.
