Officials knowingly drew drinking water from a contaminated well for more than two decades even after warnings by state environmental officials, according to a published report.

Records showed that state Environmental Protection Agency officials cited contaminated tap water in Crestwood in the 1980s, saying it contained dangerous chemicals related to a dry-cleaning solvent, according to a Chicago Tribune story published Sunday.
