EPA: Air samples OK near Springfield manufacturer By Matt Sanctis Springfield News-Sun (OH) July 1, 2014Air samples collected from a handful of homes near Cascade's manufacturing facility showed no cause for concern, according to information from the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency.
The Sheridan Avenue company, which manufactures attachments for fork and truck lifts, recently collected air samples from about 10 homes near its property to check for signs of vapor intrusion from trichloroethylene. Also known as TCE, the chemical had been used to clean and degrease metal and gives off vapors that can seep into homes.
Air samples taken from the homes recently were below screening levels."It basically means nothing of concern showed up," said Dina Pierce, a spokeswoman from the Ohio EPA.
A chemical spill occurred at Cascade in 1988, and the company has since monitored and treated groundwater on its site.
