Since the release discovery, Colonial Pipeline has remained committed to protecting public health and safety, recovering free product, and assessing and remediating the local environment.
We take our community and regulatory responsibilities seriously and will continue to take every appropriate step at the site to remediate it consistent with all regulatory requirements.
From the beginning of this incident, information gathered from the field has informed our analysis, and we continue to collect and analyze additional information as it becomes available. We maintain an extensive subsurface monitoring and recovery-well network to monitor and remediate the release. This data indicates the product is contained to the general vicinity of the release area, and ongoing water supply well sampling results have shown there has been no impact to drinking water wells.
We remain committed to keeping all stakeholders informed throughout this process and being in the Huntersville community for as long as it takes to restore the natural environment to acceptable regulatory standards. We deeply appreciate the patience of the community as we continue the recovery, assessment, and remediation process and are committed to earning back the trust of the community through our actions on the ground in Mecklenburg County.
