MTBE Contamination

MTBE (methyl tertiary butyl ether) contamination in an area on Long Island migrated from a site that reported a release involving several feet of gasoline in the ground. MTBE is a toxic gasoline additive that can cause extensive groundwater and soil gas vapor hazards. The pollution extended under two nearby school properties and into an adjoining residential community. Toxics Targeting compiled and attributed groundwater monitoring results using digital ortho photos.
