The municipal drinking water wells in the City of New Brighton/Arden Hills were found to be contaminated with volatile organic solvents in June 1981. The City opened two new wells in 1982 to reach a lower non-contaminated water aquifer. Since it was first discovered, the contamination levels have increased in the remaining undeepened municipal wells to approximately 70 ppb trichloroethylene (TCE). The Minnesota Department of Health has ordered several municipal and six private wells closed. The users of the private wells are at present being supplied with bottled water. The cost-effective Initial Remedial Measure (IRM) is to extend the existing water supply system to the New Brighton and Arden Hills private well users whose wells have been found to be contaminated with TCE and other chlorinated organics. Capital costs for the IRM are estimated to be $217,958.
