ELLENDALE, Del. - Tuesday night, about 40 people met with state officials at Mount Zion A.M.E Church in Ellendale to get an update on an ongoing water contamination problem, first identified back in 2009.
Authorities told WMDT that the source of the contamination is a gasoline leak at a salvage yard located near the church. It directly affects the church and two nearby homes.
Authorities have yet to identify all responsible parties. However one of the potential parties is helping with the clean-up process.
