The tests on water from three locations in the Kentucky River and seven taps spread out of the county and Whitesburg water systems showed all diesel range organics below the reported detect limits. Since the results were not broken down into individual chemical constituents as we hoped, we are not able to report those chemicals in relation to the EPA’s drinking water standards.
We will continue to decipher the results and will post the actual reports as soon as possible.
The laboratory has not yet returned the results of gasoline range organics testing, citing “matrix interference.”
