More groundwater contamination found in Grand Island
by Associated Press

There is more groundwater contamination here.

Earlier this fall, contamination had been identified in the Castle Estates subdivision. Now Grand Island Utilities Director Gary Mader says more has been found west of the subdivision, around the Indianhead Golf Course.

"That's all I know," said Mader of the contamination's location.

The Environmental Protection Agency told the Grand Island Independent that results of test samples drilled in October have been verified but are being mailed first to property owners.

EPA spokeswoman Beckie Himes said any formal public release of the findings will take a couple of weeks.

Mader's announcement was made in passing at a City Council meeting Tuesday night.
