Initial Round of Sampling at Bannister Federal Complex Buildings 50 and 52 Reveals No Indoor Air Health Concerns

(Kansas City, Kan., Feb. 18, 2010) - Results of recent air monitoring in and around a child care facility and an adjacent building at the Bannister Federal Complex in Kansas City do not reveal health concerns with indoor air at the facilities, EPA Region 7 officials announced today.

EPA Region 7 and its contractors performed a series of sampling activities February 4-7 at the two buildings, which are part of the General Services Administration's managed portion of the complex at 1500 E. Bannister Road. Building 50 houses GSA's Kansas City South Field Office, and Building 52 houses the Bannister Complex Child Development Center, a day care facility.

This round of sampling involved tests of indoor air, as well as supplemental tests of outdoor air and air samples taken from beneath the concrete floor slabs of both buildings. Indoor air samples showed no indication of health concerns related to volatile organic compounds. Results of the related sampling do not indicate migration from beneath the building that would pose health risks.
