Torrance : 4 Mobil Oil Wells OKd

October 22, 1987

The City Council unanimously approved licenses for Mobil Oil Corp. to install four wells on city property. The wells will monitor ground water for possible contamination by petroleum products leaking from its refinery. Mobil already has three wells along Del Amo Boulevard.

Initial tests on the underground migration of petroleum leaks near the refinery established that no danger of explosion exists and officials decided to continue monitoring to determine whether contamination threatened drinking water.
