EPA plans drilling tests at former NCR site to determine if harmful

DAYTON — The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency plans to test for groundwater pollution by December to determine if there are harmful vapors that could threaten workers at a former NCR Corp. office building or residents in the nearby Rubicon Mill neighborhood.
The testing, which involves using a drilling rig, is needed because groundwater monitoring wells turned up contamination from volatile organic compounds, likely solvents left over from NCR manufacturing operations decades ago, said Joseph Smindak, senior site coordinator for the OEPA.
NCR, which sold the office building this year to Cox Ohio Publishing, the parent company of the Dayton Daily News, says the readings aren't high enough to pose a hazard.
