EPA Water Sampling Results Released for Colonial Pipeline Spill

In response to the Colonial pipeline Spill and as part of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) mission to protect human health and the environment, sampling teams are working collaboratively with the Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM), the Cahaba Riverkeeper and Colonial Pipeline Company to collect water quality samples throughout impacted and potentially impacted areas at the response site.

EPA’s water samples are consistent with the Colonial Pipeline Company water samples. Current sampling results indicate that the Peel Creek and the Cahaba River are currently NOT impacted.
