Contaminated Public Water in Ulster, PA

This all happened in 2009, but some people are just finding out about it.  What happened to contaminate the public water well in Ulster, PA, in 2009?  This article does not explain that.  How did the water get polluted?  And why did the 12 other test wells dug to attempt to find good, safe water, turn up nothing acceptable?  They had to spend $3 million dollars to remedy the situation which affected only 183 customers.  The money was obtained through the PennVest program.  This is a state agency, so I would assume the taxpayers of PA are funding it.
