Tests: TCE In Soil, Not In School

Hanover - The latest round of testing for Trichloroethylene, or TCE, at Richmond Middle School has shown no evidence of the potentially carcinogenic chemical indoors, but tests did find the compound deep in the soil on the school grounds, confirming for the first time that the vapor has migrated across Route 10 from a military research laboratory.

The news this week that there are no detectable traces of TCE inside the middle school was welcomed by school administrators, who are preparing for the first day of classes next Wednesday.


Although this month’s test did not detect TCE in the school building, the Army Corps of Engineers plans to test the indoor air every three months.
