Description
[Back to Top]

On Thursday July 20, 2006 Maine DEP requested technical assistance from the EPA to evaluate the indoor air quality of numerous apartments near an abandoned dry cleaner. Previous DEP analytical data indicated that one apartments had PCE concentrations above the State's chronic level and near the acute action level.


Based on this information OSC Nalipinski was deployed on Friday during which time a site reconnaissance was conducted. Mini suma air samples were also collected.

On Tuesday July 18, 2006 OSC Nalipinski and START deployed to the site and conducted air screening with a TVA 2000 and tedlar bags which were analyzed by a field lab. Based on the screening results 20 eight hr suma canisters were located. Results are due the last week of July. Also on Tuesday, DEP's contractor installed a soil vapor extraction system for the buildings where the indoor air quality was near the acute action level. Two children less than two years old resided in this building.
