Emerson: TCE at school from old NCR factory By Krisy Gashler Ithaca Journal (NY) September 7, 2007ITHACA - Low levels of TCE contamination found at South Hill Elementary School likely came from a sewer line from the old National Cash Register factory, rather than from Emerson Power Transmission, according to a Wednesday press release from Emerson.
Emerson collected six soil vapor samples on school grounds to test for trichloroethylene, or TCE, and other volatile organic compounds (VOCs). TCE was used by Emerson's previous owner, Morse Chain, to degrease parts until the late 1970s. It is considered a likely carcinogen.
TCE was detectable at every location, but at levels that the state Departments of Health and Environmental Conservation say requires no further remediation.
The sewer line ran down the southeast portion of the EPT property, then down South Aurora Street, adjacent to the school, according to the Emerson release.
