"The Fernald Community Health Effects Committee, Inc. (F-CHEC) partnered with the University of Cincinnati Environmental Health Foundation (UEHF) to conduct research aimed at identifying and reviewing existing information on contaminants of water in wells and cisterns in the five-mile exposure domain of the former Fernald uranium processing plant. The F-CHEC and UEHF partnership is hereinafter called the Research Team.

The Research Team determined that the existent information on well use in the five-mile exposure domain did not include either the number or the locations of offsite water wells within the exposure domain. Therefore, it was apparent that this project should include a database of offsite water wells within the five-mile exposure domain."

This research was completed money allocated during Round 4 of the Citizens’ Monitoring and Technical Assessment Fund (MTA Fund). Clark University was named conservator of these works.
