The city of Elkhart is located in north central Indiana in Elkhart County. Three well fields supply drinking water to approximately 37,000 of the city's residents. In April 1981, during an U.S. EPA Groundwater Supply Survey, volatile organic compounds were detected in water furnished from Main Street Well Field. The selected remedial action includes construction of air stripping facilities to remove volatile organic compounds from the contaminated flow from the Main Street Well Field. The treated water will be discharged to the existing water treatment plant and distribution system.
