Thomas McKenna was quoted in the News Journal feature on Toxic Water:

Delaware Geological Survey scientist Tom McKenna said the only thing to do about pollution in the area now is to cut off the source, clean up as much as possible and wait to see how far it spreads.

"You're not going to stop the tremendous volume of water from moving. You can't possibly pump it all out. You just have to be able to predict where the water is going, so folks can be made aware," McKenna said. "There is no fix."
