Subject: [CPEO-MEF] VOCs: Hill Air Force Base (UT) vapor testing
Layton homes tested for volatile vapors

Ogden Standard-Examiner (UT)

LAYTON -- Hill Air Force Base continues to sample the indoor air of Layton homes situated above shallow, contaminated groundwater plumes, as the base works to mitigate any volatile vapors coming off the groundwater.

Base officials attended the Layton City Council meeting last week to provide city leaders with an annual update of the long-term cleanup of Operable Unit No. 8.

That area, as defined by the base, is where groundwater plumes contaminated by trichloroethylene (TCE) and 1,2 DCA -- chemicals originating from a degreaser the base used for years for aircraft -- have flowed off base and into area neighborhoods.
