Many of you are aware that there has been an ongoing issue of groundwater infiltration in the sub-basement of the Academic Core Building. In seeking a solution, a consulting firm named Tectonic was retained by the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York (DASNY). During the course of the study, Tectonic tested the groundwater in wells around the campus and discovered detectable concentrations of the chemical known as tetrachloroethene, or PCE, in two wells near the Performing Arts Center. Tectonic then tested groundwater samples in the sub-basement of the Academic Core Building and reported that it found "the presence of PCE below NYSDEC groundwater standards." Air samples in both the Performing Arts Center and Academic Core Building were also tested; no PCE was detected in the air.
