Lab Analysis of Dust Wipe Samples

EPA staff collected dust wipe samples on April 17, 2014, on residential properties near the fenceline of KCBX North and South Terminals. Two dust samples were collected at each location: one was analyzed for polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and one analyzed for trace metals and minerals.

On July 1, 2014, EPA staff collected a second set of dust wipe samples at public parks between one and three miles away from the KCBX terminals for comparison to fenceline sites.
