DENR tests more Wake Forest homes, finds no TCE


The North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources said Monday that groundwater testing has been done at 15 additional homes on Keith Road in Wake Forest, and there were no detections of TCE or PCE.

DENR said the homes "were tested in an abundance of caution because there were no wells between them and the original source area."

The issue has been a huge concern in the Wake Forest community because of TCE, which is short for trichloroethylene, in the well water of some homes there, and NBC-17 Investigates has been pushing for answers on the issue.
