Summary
Abstract: EPA in coordination with the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality
performed chemical sampling of New Orleans flood waters for over one hundred
priority pollutants such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs), semivolatile
organic compounds (SVOCs), total metals, pesticides, herbicides, and
polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). Concentrations of lead in the flood water
exceeded EPA drinking water action levels. These measured levels are a concern
if flood water were to be a child's source of drinking water.
