U.S. EPA Confirms School Property Not Contaminated By Drycleaner

According to a recent article in the River Forest Leaves newspaper, the U.S. EPA conducted testing to confirm that the soil at St. Luke Parish School in River Forest is environmentally safe.

The school is across the street from River Forest Dry Cleaners, located at 7613 Lake Street.  The dry cleaners is listed on Illinois EPA’s Site Remediation Program database, and, according to the article, it is “contaminated with perchloroethylene, commonly used by dry cleaners.”  Testing has apparently confirmed, however, that the contamination did not migrate to the school’s property.
