Add another probable carcinogen to the list of contaminants you can find at Hill Air Force Base.

The 75th Air Base Wing said Friday that soil samples in a section of military family housing near the base's southwest gate yielded polychlorinated biphenyls, or PCBs. About 100 homes are affected.

Hill Air Force Base was declared a Superfund site in 1987 and added to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's National Priorities List, because of trichloroethylene, or TCE, found in various groundwater plumes flowing off the base.
