WOODS CROSS, Utah – Chemicals used in dry cleaning have contaminated wells in Woods Cross, and residents showed up at the city council meeting on Tuesday demanding to know what is being done to clean it up.
Woods Cross draws its drinking water from five different wells in the city, but the chemical PZE has made its way into the ground water under the city and to four of those five wells.
Woods Cross Mayor Perry says that the city can’t guarantee water free from pollutants in the future, and they’re presenting several solutions.
One of the presented solutions is to do nothing, and residents say that is definitely the wrong choice.
“There are four things that humans need to survive: food, shelter, air – which is questionable – and our water. We don’t need two of the four to be against us,” one resident said.
