Water supply contamination tests delayed in Holliston

Posted by Ralph Ranalli September 4, 2007 07:55 AM


Tests that will check whether contaminants from a waste transfer station on Washington Street are making their way toward town drinking water have been delayed, Board of Health chairwoman Anita Ballesteros said.

Health officials had hoped to install test wells last month, but officials from Holliston Residential Realty, LLC, which owns property in the area, did not allow the town access to its land to install the wells. Ballesteros said health officials will ask the engineers who designed the study if there are other suitable locations for the test wells.

So far, tests of town drinking water have shown no contaminants from the transfer station, which is owned by Fairfield, New Jersey-based Covanta Holding Corporation.
