The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) issued a health consultation for the Williamson WV Sites on February 10, 2004. The health consultation found that there was no public health hazard from chemicals from the Norfolk Southern railcar clean-out area, the Rawl Sales and Processing Strip Mine (from the area where there was an alleged PCB spill), or the Old Williamson Landfill area. The health consultation reviewed existing private well water data as part of the environmental assessment. Two recommendations were made concerning the use of the well water in this site. First, people who may not be able to regulate manganese in their body should consider using another source of drinking water. Second, infants should not be fed formula mixed with this water because of the high levels of manganese and sulfates.
