A well is being drilled to bedrock at Ray's MFA, California, to determine the quality of groundwater. Following the removal of the fuel tanks after the pumps and any soil deemed to have been contaminated were removed several years ago, the Missouri Department of Natural Resources (DNR) ordered tests for contaminants in the soil. In order to close the site, DNR hired Midwest Environmental Consultants to have a well drilled to bedrock and water for the purpose of determining the quality of water in the bedrock area in case someone in California drills a drinking water well. Roberts Environmental Drilling, Inc., is the subcontractor for the work.
