Abstract
Residual dust samples were analyzed for Mirex (2385855), lindane (58899) and 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (1746016) (TCDD) during decontamination of the Niagara Steel Finishing Company (SIC- 3440) in Niagara Falls, New York, on August 21, 1980. The samples were obtained by vacuuming using a mixed cellulose ester membrane filter and an air pump. Twenty four residual dust samples from structural members, window sills, equipment and various other surfaces were analyzed to determine decontamination effectiveness. No concentrations of mirex, lindane or TCDD were detected. The author concludes that the facility is satisfactorily decontaminated.
