December 20, 2018
In response to the possibility of elevated risk modeled by NATA, EPA Region 6 and the Louisiana Department of Environmental (LDEQ) conducted preliminary ambient air sampling in March of 2016 to decide if a more extensive and comprehensive monitoring and assessment plan was needed. LDEQ collected instantaneous or “grab” samples and analyzed those samples using LDEQ’s Mobile Air Monitoring Lab (MAML). Additionally, EPA collected a small number of 8-hour and 24-hour canister samples. Both EPA’s and LDEQ’s air monitoring detected chloroprene off-site within and outside of a 1-mile radius of Denka.
