As you may know, Worcester Township has been in discussion with the US Army to acquire the former US Army Reserve Center on Berks Road. The US Army has agreed to transfer the 19-acre property to the Township at no cost, provided this property is used for recreational purposes.
Prior to the Township taking ownership of this property, a number of inspections and investigations were completed at the property.
Worcester Township has been notified of test results taken from the site wells within the grounds at the US Army Reserve Center. The test results reflected that PFOA and PFOS may have impacted the groundwater. These test results do not pertain to drinking water. Other tests conducted on the drinking water well at the site did not confirm the presence of PFOA or PFOS above the EPA advisory level for drinking water.
