Vapor Contamination: February 2017 Archives

What the People Near the Livonia Ford Plant Need to Know About Vinyl Chloride Contamination

Recently, Ford Motor Company sent a letter to the owners of homes and businesses to the immediate east of Ford's Transmission Plant in Livonia, Michigan, to deliver the unfortunate news that a chemical known as "vinyl chloride" is contaminating the shallow groundwater in their neighborhood. The revelation of this serious groundwater contamination demands more and urgent testing, specifically to determine how and where the vinyl chloride may be moving, and whether it is threatening to intrude--in "vapor" form-- into the homes and businesses, where people are breathing the air. However, even though it has apparently not done this critical testing, Ford nevertheless wrote in its letter that "there is no health risk to residents" from the contamination, and that the "extent of the vinyl chloride has successfully been defined".

Will Michigan Finally Confront the Vapor Intrusion Problem Threatening Thousands of its People?
