Contaminated Plume of Groundwater.
What makes the Jones Road Superfund site particularly dangerous is that its contamination created a plume in the groundwater. The contamination was first discovered at a local gymnastics facility and has since migrated under a neighborhood in which over 50% of the homes are supplied by groundwater.
Our Endorsable Jones Road Letter
We want to champion your voice. This letter addresses several remaining critical requests and concerns, such as groundwater remediation and the provision of safe drinking water for residents. Each submitted letter represents to the EPA the strength of our communal interest and expresses the urgency to fully remediate the Jones Road Ground Water Plume Superfund Site. We’re proud to have seen several achievements towards our goal and invite you to lend your voice to the cause today.
The Jones Road Groundwater Plume Superfund Site in Cypress, Texas serves as a prime example of how community and government collaboration leads to remediation. The Bell Dry Cleaning company’s improper waste disposal began in the late 80’s and went unchecked until it was shut down in 2002.
It’s Not Just In The Water, It’s In The Air, Too.
The contaminants of concern (COC’s) can escape the water and emit into the ambient or indoor air as toxic vapors. While vapor extraction is ongoing over the next two years, the EPA still needs to work on a long term plan for groundwater remediation. This is why we must continue to engage residents and the government to advocate for the safe removal of toxins from this Site.
We are honored to represent your voice
by providing multiple technical reports on behalf of your community. Your voice emboldens our vision. Here is what we’ve accomplished together:
We have successfully urged the EPA to test groundwater wells in the neighborhood for contaminants of concern at no cost to homeowners.
