January 2016 Grenada Environmental Study Public Meeting Fact Sheet

In September/October 2015, EPA oversaw sampling (on behalf of Grenada Manufacturing, LLC) of the indoor air, outdoor air, and groundwater in the Eastern Heights neighborhood in Grenada, Mississippi. Based on the sampling results thus far, EPA has determined that there is no immediate concern for public heath, but that additional investigations are needed. The sampling done in the homes was necessary to evaluate whether contamination, primarily the solvent, TCE, may be entering structures in the form of a gas (or vapor) from contamination below ground (also referred to as “vapor intrusion;” see Figure 1) or from another source.
