State says toxin levels low at site

Bergen Record (NJ)
September 21, 2008

POMPTON LAKES - In a recent conversation with The Record, staff members of the state Department of Environmental Protection reported the following about the chemical contamination beneath a local neighborhood:

* To date, vapor testing of homes above the plume has shown some evidence of the degreasing chemicals PCE and TCE, some above and some below the state's standard for screening. But nothing has scored what's called the "rapid action level," which would require the installation of mitigation systems. That level is about 10 times the so-called "screening level," which would advise that more testing is done.

No sampling results they have seen so far, they said, "would pose a significant threat."
