Air Force Offers Indoor Air Sampling to Residents, Businesses
The Air Force has begun its annual outreach to homes and businesses in the city that are near areas of groundwater contamination from Hill Air Force Base. Those affected will receive a packet in the mail offering free indoor air sampling to determine if potentially harmful vapors from the groundwater could be entering homes or workplaces. Sampling will begin in October and will go through March of 2023. If vapors are found above established action levels, the Air Force will take steps to prevent those vapors from entering the home or building. The city drinking water has not been affected by the contamination.
If you do not receive a letter, your home or business is not within an area of concern. Those receiving the mailing are encouraged to request indoor air sampling. Information about the program, including maps showing the areas eligible for sampling, is available at www.hill.af.mil/IAP. Please call 801-775-3651 or 801-775-3652 if you have any questions about Hill AFB’s sampling program.
