More EPA Tests for Village Properties

BALLSTON SPA – The federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) indicated this week that about a dozen homes near the abandoned Rickett’s dry-cleaning site on Doubleday Avenue will be subject to secondary “vapor intrusion” tests in the weeks ahead.  

In a statement, the EPA indicated that testing at 11 homes is necessary “to confirm that there have been no changes in the conditions at the properties” since a similar effort was made early last year.  

“Consistent with the previous sampling effort, the process will include the installation of air-sampling equipment and the subsequent collection of air samples from beneath and within the structures. The same 15 chemicals of concern will be analyzed,” the EPA added, specifying the “primary chemicals” of “trichloroethene, tetrachloroethene, and vinyl chloride.”

Results of the testing will be provided directly to homeowners, according to the EPA.
