Abstract
On the basis of medical and environmental data collected at the Water Well Drillers (SIC-4619) in Western Tennessee, the use of polyvinyl-chloride (PVC) cement is not found to constitute a health hazard under existing conditions of use. Environmental samples show only low levels of tetrahydrofuran (109999) and no detectable levels of cyclohexanone (108941). Responses to medical questionnaires indicate no symptoms associated with exposure to the chemicals.
