This video gives a simple overview of the most common types of epidemiological studies, their advantages and disadvantages. These include ecological, case-series, case control, cohort and interventional studies. It also looks at systematic reviews and meta-analysis that could include data gathering on people affected by water contamination.
Part of the clean up selection process under the Superfund program involves the Air Force Plant 44 Regional Groundwater Plume, south of Los Reales Road.
The Air Force is proposing to conduct more clean up of hot spot areas where TCE and 1,4-dioxane (1,4-DX) levels are the highest.
The public can make a written comment on this hot spot treatment by e-mailing Air Force civil engineer George Warner at George.Warner@us.af.mil. Comments must be made by Sept. 30.
