Many petroleum products, such as gasoline, fuel, oil, and propane, seep into the ground and permeate the groundwater in both commercial and residential neighborhoods.

Some of the most common chemicals that infect the water include:

  • Benzene
  • MTBE
  • Toluene
  • Beryllium
  • Pesticides
  • Silica
  • Manganese
  • Asbestos
  • PCBs
