Solvay Specialty Polymers, headquartered on Leonard Lane, said Thursday that it would test at least 90 wells in the township and in East Greenwich to determine the spread of perfluorinated compounds (PFCs), specifically perfluorononanoic acid (PFNA). Residents whose wells will be tested can receive free, delivered bottled water from the company, because the testing "may generate concern," Solvay said.

He replaced Nelson Hayspell, who resigned after last season.

To the naked eye, it was obviously unbridled energy - the sources of which were numerous for the West Deptford boys' lacrosse team. "This is our biggest rival," senior Nick Ellis said. "On top of that, we haven't gotten off to the start we wanted to; we expected to have a winning record at this point. And we leave for our senior trip [Saturday], so we wanted to make sure we left on a good note.
