DUNCAN, Oklahoma -- Henry and Amy Calloway have lived in their north Duncan home for four years, and all that time they used water from their well--until last week.

That's when they learned that their well and the wells of many others were contaminated with perchlorate, which is known to cause thyroid problems.

"The first steps we did was just automatically stop letting kids drink the water," said Amy Calloway. "We stopped using the ice. We started buying ice."

Halliburton Corporation, which has admitted its burning of rocket fuel contaminated the groundwater, has supplied the Calloways with bottled water. Tonight Halliburton will put the family up in a Duncan hotel, so they can have a chance to shower.

Henry Calloway says Halliburton is acting like a good corporate citizen. Still, he says he may be willing to join a lawsuit under consideration by the law firm associated with Erin Brockovich.

Brockovich spoke at a public meeting in Duncan Tuesday night.
