Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Depressurization systems being installed in Franklin, Indiana schools

Construction crews are in the process of removing harmful chemical compounds from the ground underneath Needham and Webb Elementary schools using a depressurization system.

Indianapolis-based sub-contractor All Points Considered arrived at the school grounds earlier this month to start construction. Environmental consultant EnviroForensics, also of Indianapolis, designed the system, and Franklin schools will pay an estimated $469,179, said Jeff Sewell, Franklin schools’ operations director.

EnviroForensics previously conducted tests before spring break that showed levels of the compounds PCE and TCE were higher than normal. Those compounds can cause harmful health effects in high enough concentrations.
