Pompton Lakes council wants independent test for toxic vapors

The Record (NJ)
July 1, 2008

POMPTON LAKES - Several members of the Borough Council want to hire an independent consultant to test the soil outdoors and the basements of 350 homes for toxic vapors. And they want DuPont, the company responsible for the contamination, to pick up the tab.

"I strongly feel that it is a responsibility of the town for the health and welfare of the citizens living on the so-called 'plume' to hire an independent contractor to test inside and outside the homes," said Councilwoman Lisa Riggiola, who lives in the affected zone.

Meanwhile, two public information hearings are set for today and will include local, state, and DuPont representatives. at 3 and 7 p.m. at the Carnavale Center at St. Mary's Roman Catholic Church on Lenox Avenue, across from Borough Hall.
