Polychlorinated-biphenyls (PCBs) were introduced in the late 1920s and used until the 1970s when they were banned in most countries due to evidence of environmental build-up and possible adverse health effects. Indoor air in PCB-contaminated buildings may confer airborne exposure markedly above background regional PCB levels.
Please join the EBC TSCA and PCB Working Group to discuss the impact of PCBs on public health, including an in-depth discussion of indoor exposure to PCBs in Vermont schools.
Patricia Coppolino (Senior Environmental Program Manager, VT DEC) will discuss the recent solicitation for consultants to conduct indoor air sampling in schools across Vermont for PCBs. Additionally, Sarah Vose, Ph.D. (State Toxicologist, VTDOH) will discuss the current indoor air “screening value” that was developed by the VTDOH for use in schools in the state.
Kimberly Tisa, Regional PCB Coordinator for US EPA Region 1, joins the panel for a robust discussion with the audience that will conclude the webinar.
