Homes Wait On Results Of Volatile Organic Compounds Testing

Posted: Updated:

BOZEMAN - 20 homes in the Bridger Creek Subdivision are still waiting on results to find out if volatile organic compounds are found in their homes.

The city has been routinely testing both the groundwater and the landfill gases since a landfill closed in 2008.

The homes are being tested in a three-part process. Crews already went in and surveyed the 20 homes to test the indoor air.

If any tests do come back positive, the city will pay for all costs to get the compounds removed.

"We'll walk them through the results and make sure they understand what we found in the house." said Dustin Johnson, Bozeman Project Engineer. "Right now, we want to make sure we get at least two samples."

The city will do another sampling of the homes in the winter.
