Three wells will be installed in Bethpage, Long Island, next month to treat contaminated groundwater that for decades has spread from a former manufacturing site.

The contaminated area, known as a plume, began forming 60 years ago as the defense contractor Northrop Grumman built fighter jets for the U.S. Navy during World War II.
