Abstract
The Katonah Municipal Well site is located in the Village of Katonah in the Town of Bedford, Westchester County, New York. The well is situated on a peninsula owned by the City of New York that extends into the Muscoot Reservoir. In 1978 the Westchester County Department of Health (WCDH), acting on Putnam County Health Department findings, sampled the Katonah well and other local wells for contamination. These samples revealed the presence of tetrachloroethylene (PCE) and other VOCs in the well water. These contaminants were traced to a local septic waste collector who was disposing of wastes taken from several Katonah dry cleaning establishments. In 1978 the Katonah well was closed and source control measures were initiated requiring dry cleaning establishments to pump out their septic systems and modify solvent disposal techniques. Initial attempts by WCDH and the Town of Bedford to remove contamination from the affected aquifer failed. The primary contaminant of concern affecting the ground water is PCE.
