Testing Verifies No Impact to Drinking Water Supplies
In the spring of 2014, Ameren Missouri installed monitoring wells and sampled surface waters near our Rush Island Energy Center to verify groundwater conditions. The well locations were selected based upon proximity to local residents in order to gauge the groundwater flow and quality of nearby wells.
Samples were analyzed by a toxicologist who compared them to Missouri groundwater and federal drinking water requirements. The sampling results indicate that the groundwater does not pose a threat to well users in the area and there are no adverse impacts on human health.
