New wells will provide early alerts for groundwater contamination

Scientists from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) began drilling “sentinel” wells at the first of three locations in the Trumbull Village neighborhood in Albuquerque, N.M., to provide early alerts for groundwater contamination.

These new sentinel wells will provide early warning if there is a northeastward movement of the Kirtland Air Force Base Bulk Fuels Facility plume, and would provide Albuquerque Bernalillo County Water Utility Authority (ABCWUA) and Air Force officials lead time to implement plans to protect nearby groundwater drinking water supply wells.
