Weitz & Luxenberg Investigates Algona, Washington Community Affected by Groundwater Contamination, Potentially Dangerous Vapors
Weitz & Luxenberg has begun investigating reports from a small community in Washington that its groundwater has been contaminated by a dangerous carcinogen called trichloroethylene.
Test results revealed potentially unsafe amounts of trichloroethylene (TCE) in the groundwater around Algona, Washington, a small community 25 miles south of Seattle. This toxic chemical, which is a component of a chemical used for degreasing airplanes, was apparently released from a fabrication complex belonging to manufacturing giant Boeing. TCE can volatilize out of the shallow groundwater and move upwards through the soil and into homes.
Disturbingly, although Boeing has known of the release of TCE into Algona’s groundwater for more than a year, Algona residents were kept in the dark about the spill until January 2013. Weitz & Luxenberg is interested in talking to residents of Algona as we continue to investigate this environmental hazard. If you or someone you know may have been affected by the Algona TCE spill, please contact Weitz & Luxenberg today.
