Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Lodi Public Library, California
Library moving to temporary home during its renovations

When the Lodi Public Library closes for renovations on Dec. 1, seventhgrader Rae'Moni Harper hopes its temporary home will be close by so she can still come study with her sister every day after school.


Environmental engineering firm Treadwell and Rollo recently tested the building to see if it would be safe for the public, said city spokesman Jeff Hood. The experts found that while there are some remnants of PCE/TCE, the health risk to the public would be insignificant. The testers' report said that a person could breathe the air for more than 25 years and still be healthy, according to Hood.

The PCE/TCE levels have decreased because a ventilation system was installed in the building in 2002, and the city's cleanup efforts have also removed thousands of pounds of the contaminant from near that location, Hood said.
