ROGERSVILLE, Mo. - Water wells in the Rogersville area have been tested for a chemical known as TCE for several years.
Now, the Environmental Protection Agency thinks a small cluster of wells in and around the Compass Plaza on the west side of town should be put on the Superfund National Priorities List.
Many of the businesses in the area have not been effected because they're on city water. Being added to the Superfund list means further study and possible cleanup on the government's dime.
Rogersville Mayor Jack Cole says he doesn't think people will be affected by the contaminated water and looks at this proposal as a chance to have federal help to insure clean drinking water for the future.
