I stand corrected. In the August 2003 briefing I received, the Air Force did mention soil gas studies, and it concluded that there was no "apparent risk" to the community. Since then, it has conducted more soil vapor monitoring.

I plan to review the results of the sampling to see to what degree I agree with the conclusions.

[I visited Kelly Air Force Base a couple of years ago, and I understand that most of its neighbors don't get their water from the contaminated upper aquifer. As far as I know, however, there has been no sampling for vapor intrusion - a much more likely pathway from the shallow aquifer into the community. The Air Force has looked for, and found, vapor intrusion at Hill Air Force Base, Utah, a similar installation to Kelly. Why hasn't it sampled the air around Kelly? - LS]
