An air sample canister was triggered to retrieve a sample Town of Erie Landfill Northeast and Erie Landfill North stations on March 11 at 11:20 a.m. and on March 12 at 6:13 a.m., respectively.
The event at the Landfill Northeast station is part of a period of sustained elevated readings, which are being assessed to determine whether the readings are a result of instrument sensor signal shift, or an actual elevation in VOCs in the area.
The event at Landfill North was a short duration plume lasting approximately seven minutes.
