Park on well water with Dynoseb contamination

I’m doing due dilligence on a property where small amounts of Dynoseb has been found in the drinking water. It’s just under the limit that the dept of health allows.

If I think I can clean it up, or drill a new well elsewhere on the property (with clean soil tests), will I assume any liabilities from the prior owner? Can the tennants come after me post-purchase for an issue that was caused by the previous owners? This property is also near a berry farm, which may be the source of the ground contamination.

Get yourself a good local attorney. ‘Good’ means an attorney who has already represented other local property owners with the exact same problem.


Thank you Jefferson.
