Background

The Donnelsville Contaminated Aquifer site is a contaminated groundwater plume located in the village of Donnelsville and portions of Bethel Township, Ohio. In 1990, tetrachloroethylene, or PCE, is a volatile organic compound that was first detected during routine sampling. In 2010, the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency referred the site to the U.S. EPA for additional investigations. Additional sampling confirmed that groundwater contaminated with VOCs migrated into the local drinking water wells. The source of contamination is currently unknown.
