DAYTON - Efforts to make homes safe from contaminated groundwater fumes 
near the Behr Dayton Thermal Products plant, 1600 Webster St., have run 
into problems at as many as 10 homes.

And the effort to clean indoor air contamination at a nearby school is 
ongoing, authorities have said.

The problems are caused by how some of the older homes were constructed. 
The homes have been equipped, under U.S. Environmental Protection Agency 
supervision, with air evacuation systems that are used to ventilate 
fumes caused by trichloroethylene or TCE, a degreaser.
