DEP To Hold March 26 Meeting/Hearing On TCE Contamination Site In Lycoming County

The Department of Environmental Protection will hold a meeting and hearing March 26 on the proposed response to TCE contamination of water supply wells in the Rose Valley Lake area of Gamble Township in Lycoming County. (PA Bulletin page 1219)
The water supply wells of six homes in the Rose Valley Lake have been contaminated by trichloroethene at levels that approach or exceed the statewide cleanup standard.
