Abstract
Environmental samples were analyzed for Mirex (2385855), lindane (58899), polychlorinated-biphenyls (1336363) (PCB) and 2,3,7,8- tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (1746016) (TCDD) during decontamination of the Greif Brothers Corporation facility in Niagara Falls, New York, in July 1980. Thirty one residual dust samples from structural members, ventilation system and various other surfaces were collected to determine effectiveness of decontamination. Concentrations of Mirex, lindane and PCB reported as Arochlor-1254, were 5.9, 0.92 and 34 micrograms per 50 square inches of surface area at the center conveyor located beneath the west Dravo unit. In other other samples, Mirex, lindane, PCB, and TCDD were not detected. The author concludes that except for the floor area of the center conveyor beneath the west Dravo heating unit, the facility is satisfactorily decontaminated.
