More Contaminant Found

Hanover - A chemical compound known to cause cancer has been detected in a vacant home owned by Dartmouth College adjacent to the Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory.

Dartmouth College conducted its own test on three residences near the lab in the Fletcher-Cedar neighborhood after elevated levels of trichloroethylene, or TCE, were found on the boundary of the CRREL campus earlier this year.

Results from one of the houses came back on Thursday night and showed the presence of air-borne TCE in amounts close to or exceeding the “regulatory screening levels,” college spokesman Justin Anderson said yesterday.

Dartmouth notified residents in 32 college-owned units of the findings yesterday afternoon via email and hand-delivered letters. Anderson stressed that the college doesn’t think there is any immediate health danger to residents.
