  • Lead Monitoring

    New lead standards are going to require new sampling methods. Fortunately, the latest samplers are making those requirements easier to cope with. Careful planning and research will produce valid, defensible results, while improvements in monitoring technology have increased the effectiveness and accuracy of modern high volume samplers. Today's samplers can save time and money, providing useful ...

  • UK experience in the monitoring and control of lead in drinking water

    At the zonal scale (e.g. a city or town), random daytime (RDT) sampling succeeded in demonstrating both the need for corrective action and the benefits of optimised orthophosphate dosing for plumbosolvency control, despite initial concerns about sampling reproducibility. Stagnation sampling techniques were found to be less successful. Optimised treatment measures to minimise lead in drinking ...

  • CPSC lead in products testing

    Recent changes to the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s (CPSC) program on allowable levels of lead in products have prompted new rounds of testing. As a Manufacturer (or if you are anywhere in the Supply Chain for any product sold in the United States), you are responsible for monitoring and reporting the lead content in your product. There are threshold values of allowable lead in products as ...

  • Expanding lead monitoring in support of EPA`s revised NAAQS

    On October 15, 2008, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) substantially strengthened the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) for lead. The revised standards are 10 times lower than the previous standards and will improve health protection for at-risk groups with a particular focus on children. In conjunction with this strengthening of the lead NAAQS, EPA changed the existing ...

  • Long-term noise monitoring – how a new approach leads to a better result

    Good Neighbours Limit their Noise Impact Long-term noise monitoring has taken place in various applications for many years. Business such as airports, power stations, refineries, mines, etc., may be required to perform continuous noise monitoring to ensure legal operating conditions are not breached, and to demonstrate to local authorities and communities that the business continues to be a good ...

  • LDAR deficiencies lead to enhanced requirements

    Leak detection and repair (LDAR) programs are required as part of the standards established in 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 60 (NSPS), 40 CFR 61 (NESHAP), 40 CFR 63 (MACT), and 40 CFR 264 (Hazardous Waste Handling). An LDAR program is a facility’s system of procedures used to locate and repair leaking components (e.g., valves, pumps, connectors, compressors, and agitators) to ...

  • New Zealand entrepreneurs: leading for excellence

    New Zealand (NZ) has been proclaimed as a leader in entrepreneurship by the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM) assessment. This paper links GEM findings to results from a NZ-based survey of micro-business operators and identifies factors that explain why NZ is a leader in the Entrepreneurship rating. NZ entrepreneurs are largely opportunity seeking: they want to be their own boss and are ...

  • A 25-year long monitoring of lead content in the blood of cows from a stationary polluted area

    The monitoring has been performed on lead content in the blood of cows (n = 1,279) from farms (n = 1?14) near a former lead mine and current smelting plant from 1975 to 2003. Early measurements showed that average lead concentration in the blood of cows was 1.25 ? 0.58 mg/kg while in 2002 it was about 10-times to 20-times lower (0.069 ? 0.005 mg/kg). Significant decrease in blood lead ...

  • Using watershed function as the leading indicator for water quality

    Diffuse nonpoint source (NPS) pollutants, such as sediment, nitrogen, phosphorus, and pathogens, have become the primary cause of water quality impairments in the United States of America. Resource management agencies in the USA are expanding the use of tools for the assessment of ecosystem function in water quality programs to control NPS pollution to meet US Clean Water Act objectives. ...

  • Trends of lead in suspended particulate matter in Zagreb air

    Monitoring of lead in Total Suspended Particulate Matter (TSPM) started in Zagreb, Croatia in 1971 at three measuring sites. Monitoring of lead concentrations in PM10 started in 1999. This paper presents the trends of annual mean values for lead concentrations in TSPM and in PM10 particles. The obtained data showed a decreasing trend of lead in TSPM, especially during the last ten years when the ...

  • Dust monitoring

    Generally, two different approaches are used to measure the amount of dust deposited on a surface; Determination of the soiling of a surface, by a change in its properties; Determination of the quantity of dust deposited, by weight. WHAT IS DUST? Dust is a generic term used to describe fine particles that are suspended in the atmosphere. Dust comes from a wide variety of sources, including soil, ...

  • New Field Test for Lead (Pb2+) in Soil

    Field tests for the detection of lead in soil are not frequently accepted, since the tests are rather cumbersome or not reliable for screening determinations. Recently, we developed the LEADQuick field test kit for the detection of lead in water with 3 #22;g/L sensitivity. This test is further modifiedto detect lead in soil with a sensitivity 0.03 #22;g. We developed an extraction protocol using ...

  • EH&S compliance leading the pack, or sitting back?

    The rule of thumb is to either comply with the myriad laws, rules, and permit conditions, or face the consequences negative public image, hefty fines, or even jail time. The introduction of the Title V federal air permit rules and the Sarbanes–Oxley Act launched U.S. business into a new era of compliance. Today, companies must have capable systems to monitor processes and emissions on a ...
