Investigation: School contamination Andrea Gusty, KTVA CBS 11 News (AK) August 24, 2009 The contamination at a rural school has reached new heights.After years of P.C.B. and T.C.E. contamination cleanup, the state has found toxic vapors are now making it into the air Kuspuk School District students and facility breathe.
The old White Alice communication site in Aniak was converted into a school after the military abandoned the project.
A couple years ago, the state found there is P.C.B. contamination in the soil. Last year they found T.C.E. contamination in the ground water, and just recently, they found some of those contaminated vapors are making it inside the school and into the air.
"It does exceed the screening levels for indoor air, yes." Says John Halverson with the state Department of Environmental Conservation, which is over seeing the cleanup effort.
