Update on EPA's air monitor development as of February 2014:
EPA is in the process of developing a passive air sampling method that could be deployed in the investigation area, in order to better understand how pesticides travel in the cool, moist, mountainous microclimate of the investigation area. The monitors are currently being tested under laboratory conditions, and the investigation team is hopeful the monitors will be field tested next fall. EPA finalized the Quality Assurance Project Plan (QAPP) for the project in January 2014.
Public Health Assessment:
The investigation team continues to work on addressing comments received on the Public Health Assessment. OHA received comments, some very extensive, from 54 individuals. We anticipate the final version of the report will be released sometime in the spring of 2014.
