Plainview Water District Reports No M.T.B.E. in Supply Wells
Amidst recent reports detailing the negative impact methyl tertiary butyl ether (M.T.B.E.) , a chemical added to gasoline, can have on groundwater, the Board of Commissioners for the Plainview Water District recently announced that no levels of M.T.B.E. have been found in any of the district's supply wells. However, the board emphasized that the continued utilization of M.T.B.E. in reformulated gasoline, which contains additives to improve air quality and reduce vehicle emissions, should be a concern of all water purveyors throughout the country. According to Commissioner Joel Kessler, water providers are concerned about M.T.B.E. because it is extremely difficult to remove M.T.B.E. with traditional methods of air stripping and GAC filtration, once the compound contaminates groundwater.
