Vapor intrusion is topic of meeting in Ohio suburb

Published:

RIVERSIDE, Ohio (AP) -- Environmental and health officials plan to meet with residents of a suburban Dayton neighborhood about vapor intrusion that is causing dangerous indoor air pollution.

The Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/J6jNtU ) reports that the public meeting is planned for Tuesday night at a high school regarding the environmental problems in a neighborhood in Riverside.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says vapor intrusion occurs when underground pollutants give off dangerous gases that can rise up through the soil and seep into buildings through foundation cracks and holes, causing unsafe indoor pollution that can make people sick.

The EPA's investigation started last summer after agency officials conducted some sampling in the area.

The meeting notification was sent to about 140 residences.
