Migration of Soil Particles to the Indoor Environment: Implications for Risk Assessment

We are taking soil samples, dust samples and TSP samples from near Saginaw Hill. The samples are being analyzed for crustal elements and other heavy metals. These results will help us to develop, validate and revise a model soil contaminant transport. Ultimately this model could be used to assess relative contribution of soil particles to the indoor environment and aid with decision of appropriate mitigation procedures.
