What Maryland Residents Need to Know About MTBE and Their Safety
Recent reports show that several areas in Maryland have been affected by MTBE contamination and may not even know it. Despite more recent bans on the additive, many groundwater sites still have traces of MTBE, some of which can cause harm to those who use it.
Recently, ten new sites have been discovered in the Maryland area, including four in Baltimore County, three in Harford County, two in Carroll County and one in Frederick County. Despite this, the Maryland Department of the Environment considers these new sites just a small fraction of state-wide cases.
Herbert Meade, chief of MDE's oil-control program, believes as many as 200 to 300 of his agency's old groundwater contamination cases might be serious enough to warrant notifying surrounding property owners.
