The Brewster Well Field, located on the northern bank of the East Branch Croton River, is three-quarters of a mile east of the Village of Brewster, Town of Southeast, Putnam County, NY. Since 1954 when Well Field No. 1 was developed, the Village of Brewster has used the aquifers beneath the Village-owned land as a water supply source. In 1967 Well Field No. 2 was brought on line. In 1978 evidence of volatile halogenated organic compound contamination from an unidentified source first appeared. VHOs have been the primary contaminants detected in the ground water. The principle contaminants were found to be tetrachloroethylene, trichloroethylene, and 1,2-dichloroethylene.
