Ground water near Toomer's Corner Trees safe

From Auburn University:

Results of water samples taken from underground wells in the area of the Toomers Oak trees returned from Data Analysis Technologies in Ohio showing only minor trace elements of Spike 80DF, the pesticide that was used to poison the trees.

The levels found were well below what would cause a threat to public health or the environment.

Tests were conducted as a precaution even though the water in the area beneath the trees is not tied to drinking water in the Auburn area.
