If You Don't Want To Know The Answer, Don't Ask

The company that gave us the infamous Aerojet decision (contamination that occurred over a number of years triggers insurance coverage each year) is in dutch again. This time, it's more rocket fuel north of the American River.

The Carmichael Water District is not happy - they've got a drinking water well in the area, and take 75% of their water from the river and distribute it over a seven-mile service area. Aerojet discovered NDMA when it drilled a monitoring well. NDMA, or N-Nitrosodimethylamine, is an impurity in some liquid rocket fuels and a byproduct from burning the fuel. The chemical has allegedly caused liver, kidney and lung cancer in laboratory animals.

Estimates are that it will cost an additional $10 million to clean up.

Aerojet discovered this new plume when looking for a new drinking water well. The company was searching for a new well because it had contaminated other wells.
