Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Vapor Intrusion meeting in Sunnyvale, California
Sunnyvale: EPA to test for contaminants in northern part of city

Four months after the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency stepped in to oversee a contaminated triple site in north Sunnyvale, it is now asking if it may step into your home.

The EPA is requesting permission from certain residents in the Duane and San Miguel neighborhood to collect indoor air samples this winter.

The EPA must get permission from homeowners and renters to perform the free of charge air sampling as part of a study that will look at the potential for vapor intrusion--a process in which vapors from groundwater contamination may migrate into the indoor air.

A community meeting was held Dec. 10 in the multipurpose room of San Miguel Elementary--one of four schools located within the contaminated area--to provide residents with more information about the sampling study.
