Out of sight, out of mind: Carcinogenic chemical spreads beneath Michigan town
When state and federal environmental officials visited the tucked-away town of Mancelona, Mich., 15 years ago, their presence surprised local residents. “My heart and most of my life has been spent here in Antrim County,” said Gary Knapp, a long-time resident. “And I knew nothing of its environmental problems.” While removing metal contamination from local groundwater, officials had stumbled upon one of the nation’s largest plumes of an industrial solvent called trichloroethylene, or TCE. Drinking-water wells tap into this aquifer, so the state asked the town’s help in preventing the chemical from flowing out of people’s taps. “People were helpless, frustrated and angry,” said Knapp, who was recruited by the state to start a regional water authority.

I did a report about this very dangerous ground water supply we have in Mancelona, for my geography class in 2004, and said then it will never be cleaned up. I would talk about it, saying how bad the water was and that it's probably the reason so many many people I know have had cancer and or died from it, and I would be told I was crazy, we have a new well for the town and blah blah blah....guess I may have been right. Maybe now people will quit drink and using the water. So what now? We were supposed have gotten bottled water back then, supplied from where I don't know, but I never knew anyone who received any.
