After complex and often grueling negotiations with the U.S. Navy and Department of Defense (D.O.D.), a settlement on the Plant 3 treatment facility should be reached soon.
This means there will be no tax implications or expenses passed along to SFWD consumers. The D.O.D. was held accountable for the initial contamination and agreed in principle to provide full compensation for the cost of cleanup, future operations, management and maintenance. Plant 3, specifically built to deal with the Grumman plume contamination threat to our aquifer, is designed architecturally to blend in with the community’s residential character. The water that reaches your home meets all quality standards.
