Abstract

Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) Hazardous Waste Site Health Assessment Program evaluate the health impacts of a petroleum release in their town and the health impacts from the presence of chemicals detected in wells utilized as the source of municipal water for the citizens of Silver City and in the treated municipal water supply. A health consultation has been drafted to address these issues. The health consultation determined, from the data available so far, that the petroleum release and other chemicals detected within the municipal water supply of Silver City currently pose no public health threat to the residents of Silver City through the ingestion of drinking water.
