Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Ft. Ord (CA) TCE migration
Army investigates water contamination
TCE on former Fort Ord base may be migrating westward

The U.S. Army is expanding its investigation into the size of a toxic
groundwater plume after discovering trichloroethene contamination in
shallow test wells at the border between Armstrong Ranch and Fort Ord.

The contaminant, commonly called TCE, was previously identified in wells
southeast of the Fort Ord-Marina border. The new discovery likely
indicates the contamination is migrating west. The Army's next mission
is to determine how far it has gone.

"There's been a more detailed investigation of the area," said Gail
Youngblood, the Army's Base Realignment and Closure environmental
coordinator. "That's not to say that it's not moving, because it
probably is moving."
