Yes that’s right the Donna reservoir has been something that has been covered for quite some time in regards to issues of contamination but now the EPA is ever closer to determining the source spring 2001. The Texas Commission On Environmental Quality takes samples from the Donna reservoir discovers PCBS, cancer causing chemicals in the soil, and it’s been an EPA sampling and study project ever since. But now we may be closer to uncovering the contamination cause. Years of sample and study 8 miles of surfed area now narrowed to a few thousand feet some locals believe that the contamination stems from transformers that were dumped in the reservoir years ago. Ernesto Verasa has been living along the reservoir for three years and still sees many people not heading the warnings. The idea that fire can kill harmful PCB’s is a common misconception that the EPA warns against. Now as far as an updated timeline Mr. Casanova told me they’re shooting for the end of the summer to discover the exact source before they can move into a treatment phase.
