FREDERICK, Md. (AP) - The Army says it has found unsafe levels of groundwater pollution on private property where a developer wants to build more than 700 homes near a Fort Detrick Superfund site.

Early sampling of water beneath a 92-acre site owned by Waverly View Investors LLC detected the solvent trichloroethylene, or TCE, at levels above the maximum allowed for drinking water about 100 feet from the Army’s property line, said Joseph Gortva, Fort Detrick’s restoration manager. The Frederick News-Post reported Thursday on Gortva’s presentation to the post’s Restoration Advisory Board.

TCE exposure is associated with central nervous system disorders and several types of human cancers, especially kidney, liver, cervix, and lymphatic system, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
