Posted: Updated:
SANDSTON, VA (WWBT) -

Officials investigating possibly contaminated groundwater in Sandston tested two wells in the area and found the water is safe, according to the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality.

The wells were outside the initial study area, which is off Williamsburg Road at Garland and Naglee avenues and Federal Street.

Crews were looking for traces of tetrachloroethene, a chemical found in some dry cleaning and industrial solvents.

Officials say county water was never affected.
