HRWA recent sampling at the main seeps of groundwater into Liberty Creek found concentrations of the main hazardous chemical, toluene, at levels that have been found for the last 8 years. These are well above EPA risk limits to protect public health and the environment. This data dramatically undermines ELMCO's main argument that the contamination is dissipating to low levels.
