MARYVILLE, Tenn. – July 21, 2015 – CSX continues to monitor the area surrounding the site of the July 1 derailment in coordination with the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation Water Resources Division (TDEC) under the Tennessee Division of Remediation Voluntary Oversight and Assistance Program.
The latest surface water results show no detections of acrylonitrile at any sampling points. Future surface water monitoring will be performed on a routine schedule approved by TDEC. Ground water monitoring results continue to show no product detections in any residential wells other than the onsite well previously discussed. CSX has installed 25 monitoring wells around the derailment site and will continue to aggressively monitor the area in coordination with TDEC.
CSX remains in close contact with the City of Maryville and Blount County and will provide weekly public updates to keep the community informed on monitoring results and progress.
“Even though the monitoring results continue to show improvement and move in a positive direction, the groundwater advisory remains in effect as a precautionary measure,” said Maryville City Manager, Greg McClain. “We will continue to work closely with CSX and TDEC to assess the results as they collect additional data and appreciate the continued vigilance CSX has shown in the monitoring and cleanup process.”
