The Environmental Protection Agency is investigating the source of toxic vapors found in several Petoskey condominiums built on a former superfund site.

The condos were built on the former site of the Petoskey Manufacturing Company - which was known to have been contaminated with trichloroethylene, a chemical linked to cancer.

The EPA was monitoring the site but did not believe the chemicals were concentrated enough to enter into homes until sampling on the site in January showed elevated levels of the chemical.
