MTBE Contaminating Delaware's Water

by Elizabeth Redden, Delaware State News -- 3/20/2006
"Ethanol and MTBE are both oxygenates, used to make gasoline burn more cleanly.
However, MTBE has leaked into groundwater in Delaware and across the nation, contaminating drinking water supplies.
In 2004, the Delaware State News reported that at least 21 private wells southeast of U.S. 13 in Dover were polluted with MTBE due to a gasoline leak at a nearby service station."
