Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Grand Prairie, Texas vapor testing
Air in Grand Prairie neighborhood to be tested for contaminant TCE

The Dallas Morning News
May 18, 2008

Environmental Protection Agency representatives will take air samples this week in a Grand Prairie neighborhood sitting above groundwater contaminated with a noxious liquid.

The agency will study the potential vapor intrusion into homes of trichloroethylene, or TCE, a carcinogenic liquid used to clean grease off metal. The homes are near the former Delfasco Forge site at 114 N.E. 28th St.

"We want to make sure it's not coming up through the soil and getting into living spaces," said Rick Ehrhart, an EPA corrective action coordinator.

EPA officials said there wasn't an immediate need to test the site, but they wanted to gather more data.
