Key Issues

Other Information

Public support remains good.  

Further investigation of the "source" property revealed several small containers of fire extinguisher fluid (pyrene carbon tetrachloride) and an old carbon tetrachloride fire extinguisher.  No other potential "sources" were found above-ground.  

Soil samples from the "source area" property contained negligible amounts of solvents.
