Subject: [CPEO-MEF] VOCs: Hill Air Force Base (UT) TCE response

RIVERDALE -- A decades-old contamination problem is on the mend, say Hill Air Force Base representatives.

Alan Jones, a project manager for cleanup of TCE (trichloroethene) plumes originating on the base, said 119 Riverdale homes sit on top of two plumes. Over the years, technicians have tested the air in 84 of those homes and installed vapor removal systems in six.

Jones said the TCE contamination happened when Hill Air Force Base disposed of degreasers before 1980, when contamination was first discovered in Riverdale.
