Fearing Grumman water contamination, frustrated Manorville residents without access to public water ask Navy for relief
“Every resident of the Manorville section of Riverhead worries every single time they turn on the tap." Kelly McClinchy of Manorville has organized residents in a campaign to get public water to their remote community.
The Navy is looking to sample private drinking water wells in designated areas near the former Naval Weapons Industrial Reserve Plant(NWIRP)/Grumman facility in Calverton to test for the presence of PFAs — per-fluoroalkyl and poly-fluoroalkyl substances, which have been detected in portions of the groundwater in the area.
