Site Sampling Along RFS/Zeneca Property Boundary Air Monitoring Results

November 1, 2006

Zeneca, through its environmental consultant LFR, completed groundwater along the property boundary between the former Zeneca site and the RFS during the week of October 9 (see October 5, 2006 news). The work was being done according to a Field Sampling Activities Plan and Revision Letter Zeneca submitted to the Department of Toxic Substances Control to determine the extent to which chemicals detected in groundwater at the Zeneca site may have entered the groundwater beneath the RFS. Air monitoring (Analytical Report and Map) conducted during the sampling activities found no presence of perchloroethylene or trichloroethylene, the chemicals of concern.
