Federal regulators plan to return to Louisa next month to resume their search for the source of a potentially harmful chemical found in an unused well.
An unverified field test of the town-owned Louisa Acme well conducted last year found high levels of tetrachloroethylene.
The chemical is typically found in industrial solvents or in chemicals once used for dry cleaning.
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency spokesman Roy Seneca says the groundwater and sediment samples will be taken from the well site during the week of Feb. 7.
