"One voice! One community!" they chanted. And later, "Enough is enough!" As rush hour traffic passed by, dozens of people joined hands at a gas station near Fort Meade on Monday to remember a man killed this month while trying to earn a living. Rajinder Kumar, 49, was fatally shot Aug. 7 during his overnight shift at the Exxon station at Ridge Road and Route 175 in Hanover. A man came into the store, shot the clerk and took an undetermined sum of money, according to police. Kumar, who colleagues said sent his earnings to his wife and children in India, was Muslim; last week the Anne Arundel County Muslim Council chipped in money with the FBI and Metro Crime Stoppers to offer an overall $27,000 reward in the case.

The Exxon station at Routes 152 and 165 is not the source of the chemical contamination of 178 drinking water wells in the Upper Crossroads section of Harford County, the oil company said yesterday in a report to the state. "Although further investigation is needed, the preliminary data collected thus far does not indicate that the Exxon station is the source of the regional MTBE impact found throughout the study area," Exxon Mobil Corp. said in its comprehensive site assessment report to the Maryland Department of the Environment.

In a policy shift, the Maryland Department of the Environment has released a map of the properties in the Upper Crossroads area of Harford County where wells have been contaminated by a potentially cancer-causing chemical and it is now saying it has determined that the Exxon gas station there is at least partly responsible for the problem. The map shows the level of methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) at designated properties. It also shows that some wells have been tested beyond a half-mile radius of the Exxon station at Routes 152 and 165, the suspected source of the contamination.

Nancy Welms bought a home in Jacksonville 25 years ago and watched her investment grow with the rising prices of houses and land around her.

"It's just an old farmhouse on an acre," she says. "But it's my acre. It's my nest egg. And right now, I couldn't give it away."

When more than three tanker trucks' worth of gasoline leaked from an Exxon station, Jacksonville residents worried their wells would be contaminated. But a year and a half into the cleanup efforts, they fear not only having tainted water, but having no water at all. ExxonMobil Corp. is seeking permission from Maryland's Department of the Environment to pump up to 68,500 gallons of groundwater a day, in an attempt to contain the plume of dissolved gasoline, until the cleanup is complete.

A federal judge in southern New York ruled yesterday that a lawsuit filed by Fallston residents against Exxon Mobil Corp. for future and past contamination of their wells by the gasoline additive MTBE may proceed as a class action suit. The order allows Fallston residents whose wells have been tainted by methyl tertiary-butyl ether and those whose wells have not shown levels of the additive but who may have been affected by declining property values to seek damages from Exxon Mobil and a former Exxon station that was at the intersection of routes 152 and 165. The ruling by Judge Shira A. Scheindlin consolidates the claims by the Fallston residents into one case and allows them to collectively seek damages because their claims are based on the same legal theories, the judge said.

Trial over tainted wells scheduled for May 2008 A civil trial to determine whether Exxon-Mobil Corp. should have to pay damages to Jacksonville residents whose wells were found to be tainted after a 26,700-gallon fuel leak last year is tentatively set for May 2008. Contractors continue to test wells and add monitoring wells in response to the leak from an underground storage tank at an Exxon station in the heart of the northeastern Baltimore County community. The fuel and a gasoline additive tainted the water supply of some nearby residents and businesses -- all of whom rely on wells-- and caused widespread fears about possible contamination.
