The article discusses the bypass project of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to discharge cleaning solution having perchloroethylene contaminant which penetrated the aquifer and soil through a leak in storm sewers. It states that the service contacted an equipment rental service that was able to provide a turnkey system to manage both stormwater and sanitary discharges. It adds that the groundwater had to be examined and filtered to relevant EPA requirements before discharge.
