During the summer of 1980, organic solvents were discovered in the water produced by Lakewood Wells H-1 and H-2. Significantly higher concentrations were repeatedly detected in Well H-2. The drillers logs indicated that a tight hard pan (till) layer separated the production aquifer from the unconfined semi-perched aquifer above. The annular space at H-2 was found to have been filled with pea gravel and it was hypothesized that this could be a conduit for vertical migration of contaminant. This hypothesis would also account for the higher concentrations found in H-2. This preliminary investigation tests this hypothesis by the construction and monitoring of 10 observation wells.
