CLEARFIELD -- Three intermingled and contaminated plumes are not causing health risks to residents, and now plans are for continued monitoring through 2014 to determine the best course to fix the problem.

The Hill Air Force Base Environmental Restoration Directorate updated the Clearfield City Council regarding the indoor sampling program and groundwater contamination.

There are three plumes in the area, including a shallow trichloroethene (TCE) one found between 8 and 100 feet below the ground surface, a shallow tetrachloroethene (PCE) one found approximately 25 feet below the surface, and a deep TCE plume found between 175 and 290 feet below the surface.
