Abstract

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) asked the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) Hazardous Waste Site Health Assessment Program to perform a health consultation for the Climbing Hill, Iowa, groundwater contamination site. IDNR wants to know if the site poses a public health hazard. The information in this health consultation was current at the time of writing. Data that emerges later could alter this document’s conclusions and recommendations. Climbing Hill is an unincorporated town in Woodbury County, Iowa, approximately 15 miles southeast of Sioux City. The town has approximately 120 residents. All of the residents and most businesses within the town use private wells to supply their drinking water. The local restaurant has an individual well that is classified as a public water supply system because it has the potential to serve more than 25 people in a day. Several wells in the town have become contaminated with gasoline and diesel fuel leaking from two underground storage tanks. All of the wells are roughly 75–80 feet deep (R. Cardinale, IDNR, Underground Storage Tank Section, personal communication, January 30, 2004).
