EPA Says Follow-Up Sampling Shows No PCB Risk at Park Ridge Elementary School
Date:9/28/2007

nd cleaned up the residences. EPA inspectors did follow-up testing of the soil, indoor air and interior surfaces. Small amounts of contamination were found in the soil outside two of the homes. The contamination likely occurred from spills as Nicor replaced the meters. After Nicor conducted a second cleanup of the soil at the homes, EPA took follow-up samples to confirm PCBs were no longer detected. In all, Nicor tested 140 homes in Park Ridge.

PCBs are mixtures of synthetic chemicals ranging from oily liquids to waxy solids that were used in a wide range of commercial products. Because PCBs persist in the environment and can cause harmful health effects, domestic manufacture of commercial mixtures stopped in 1977.
