EPA Meeting - CTS Air

On Monday, June 23, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will host a public availability session regarding CTS air sampling.

EPA representatives and North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NC DHHS) representatives will be available to talk to citizens one-on-one regarding on-going activities conducted at the CTS of Asheville, Inc. Site.

The EPA encourages those interested in attending to visit between the hours of 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. at the Quality Inn & Suites, Biltmore Room located at 1 Skyline Inn Drive, Arden, NC.

During the week of June 23, 2014, CTS Corporation’s contractor, with EPA oversight, will conduct additional outdoor air, indoor air and crawl space air sampling at properties adjacent to or near the springs area located east of the Site. The proposed air sampling locations were selected based on the results of EPA air sampling in 2007 and 2008, and in consideration of the April 2014 air sampling results. The preliminary sampling results are expected to be received by the EPA the following week.
