KANSAS CITY — The Environmental Protection Agency has conducted air tests at the 310-acre federal complex in south Kansas City that houses facilities for the General Services Administration and the Department of Energy.
The air monitoring tests were done at the Bannister Federal Complex from Feb. 4 to 7 in south Kansas City.
EPA regional spokesman Chris Whitley would not say what the EPA was testing for, but said results were likely in the next day or two.
Recent air tests conducted for the administration included samplings for trichloroethylene, an industrial solvent and likely carcinogen. Tests showed a plume of trichloroethylene in groundwater under the facility.
The administration says tests so far have not shown a health risk.
