DEP wants more tests at dorm

King's College allows 165 students to move into new W-B building.

WILKES-BARRE – The state Department of Environmental Protection Wednesday ordered the drilling of four holes through the foundation slab at the Gateway Corners building - a new King's College dormitory - so soil and groundwater testing can be conducted.

Until the test results are in next week, DEP spokesman Mark Carmon said, the department stands by its recommendation that the building not be occupied.

That didn't stop King's students from continuing to move into the building Wednesday. John McAndrew, a King's spokesman, said the college has not received any order to stop the move-in of 165 students.
