In recent years, the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (Illinois EPA or Agency) has become aware of contamination in the environment in certain areas of the state that threatens the safety of drinking water supplies from groundwater sources. Experience from working on multiple sites where commonly used commercial and industrial solvents migrated into the groundwater from soil contamination highlighted the need for early notification to nearby private well owners so individuals can test their water and make important decisions that may impact their families health.
