Oh! Well: Groundwater pollution has many sources

I sympathize with the citizens living next to CTS [”Off Target,” July 13 Xpress]. A photo [accompanying the article] shows the insulation businessman sitting on railroad cross-ties next to his well.

Has the well been tested for arsenic and copper and creosote that may have leached from the large railroad cross-ties that he is sitting on next to his well?

Amazing how people will place treated wood structures adjacent to their wells.

Oh, well.
