EPA plans tests for old Kingston Nike site

As a result of last-minute concerns from local residents, officials with
the Environmental Protection Agency will conduct new tests to check for
radiation at the old Kingston Nike site, where a new high school is proposed.

"We thought we were done, but we will go further," said Denise Baker,
site manager for EPA.

The EPA recently completed analysis of chemicals in soil, groundwater
and drinking water without finding significant contamination that
required cleanup. State and federal health officials are still
conducting a health assessment to evaluate potential risks for students
who will attend school there.

About the time Baker announced the chemical findings, some residents
raised questions about radioactive contamination that might have come
from nuclear warheads.
