EPA installs groundwater monitoring wells at Stratford condo site

The Environmental Protection Agency on Wednesday finished installing groundwater monitoring wells at the Village Square Condominiums in Stratford, according to Ron Jennings, a longtime project manager for Raymark waste remediation.

The 68-unit condo complex on Ferry Court borders a 500-acre pool of severely contaminated groundwater that is part of the Raymark Superfund site. The EPA wants to test the water under the complex to make sure the contaminated water does not extend beyond boundaries originally assigned to it by regulators.

Jennings said regulators don’t expect to find contaminated groundwater beneath the complex. If the EPA does find water pollution beneath the condominiums, however, the property would likely be adopted into the Superfund program, Jennings said.
