The school board wants the oil company to bear the expense of a new well because the old one is contaminated with gasoline. It’s been known that some time that the tank was leaking — bus drivers weren’t able to make full use of what they thought was a complete delivery of gasoline — even though tests to detect the point of leakage didn’t appear to show anything wrong. Once the gasoline starting showing up in the water supply, it was obvious something was wrong.
