Water supplies threatened by gasoline contaminates

Ron Hurtibise of the Daytona Beach News-Journal reports on Florida's efforts to clean up gasoline leaks in Volusia and Flagler counties, finding that "In 20 years, the state has spent $2.3 billion on cleanup strategies that often haven't worked. Old, steel gas station tanks, easily corroded in porous sandy soils, faithfully serviced generations of Florida motorists but paid no respect to the water supply vital to the state's growing population." Remediation efforts are successful for some spills but not at others, "despite outlays of hundreds of thousands of dollars, reams of paperwork and thousands of hours of employee work time."
