The purpose of this study was to identify the significant microenvironments that can lead to chromium exposure in Hudson County, New Jersey residential settings near or on soil contaminated with chromium waste. Measurements were made in indoor air, outdoor air, and house dust. Surface dust was found to be the best index of potential Cr exposure. The values of Cr in Hudson County household dust ranged from 3.25-320 ng/cm2 in wipe samples and 1.0-12 ng/cm2 in vacuum samples. Elevated Cr in… CONTINUE READING
