Clean Air near Charles Russell Elementary, Crabbe School, Hatcher School and Whitwell Elementary says EPA

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced today that the report on air toxics monitoring at four schools in the Tri-State area has been posted on the Agency’s website.  The monitored schools include Charles Russell Elementary, Crabbe School, and Hatcher School in Ashland, Ky. and Whitwell Elementary in Ironton, Ohio.

The air toxics concentrations measured, between July 2009 and April 2010 were below levels of concern at all four schools.   EPA evaluated exposures to metals, volatile organic compounds, and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in this screening study.  Based on the results of the monitoring and analysis, sampling at these schools will not be extended. 

EPA has monitored outdoor air quality at 65 schools in 22 states and two tribal areas. Outdoor air at each of the schools was monitored for a minimum of 10 daily samples over at least 60 days.  Initial monitoring at all the schools has been completed.  Reports are being written as the data are analyzed.
