  • City's water quality reports available online; Dover’s water supply remains safe

    posted on: 7/18/2018

    Dover's Ireland Well, located within the Pudding Hill Aquifer, remains offline after the detection this week of perfluorinated compounds -- PFOA, PFOS and PFHpA -- that exceed the Environmental Protection Agency's most recent health advisory level of 70 parts per trillion (ppt). The well was voluntarily taken offline in June when levels of perfluorinated compounds increased to 48 ppt, still within established health advisory levels.

    No water with values in excess of the EPA’s advisory level of 70 ppt was supplied to customers.

    In 2015, the city voluntarily closed the Griffin Well, also located within the Pudding Hill Aquifer. That decision was based on low levels of three perfluorinated chemicals (PFCs) detected at the site, adjacent to the former Madbury Metals on Route 155. As is the case with the Ireland Well, the decision to close the Griffin Well was made out of an abundance of caution, despite the PFC levels being well below current Environmental Protection Agency guidelines. Also out of an abundance of caution, the city is limiting use of the new Dover Pudding Hill 1 (DPH1), which draws from the Pudding Hill Aquifer.

    The city’s remaining seven wells are routinely tested and remain a safe source of drinking water. None of these wells have tested positive for the same PFC compounds.
