Reports show no TCE contamination at two Camdenton sites
CAMDENTON - City officials announced Friday the results of two reports on investigations into possible contamination of water in the area.
The Department of Natural Resources carried out testing for trichloroethylene, or TCE, and other volatile organic compounds (VOC) at two sites: Camdenton Sludge Disposal Area and Dawson Metal Products' Camdenton facility.
The DNR report from the sludge disposal area said sampling of private wells and a public well in the area found no TCE. There were some trace metals detected in the water, but according to the report "none were at concentrations significantly above background levels for the area, nor above National Primary or Secondary Drinking Water Standards."
