THE DOUBLE STANDARD – THE BEST FOR EPA AT 290 BROADWAY, THE WORST FOR COMMON CITIZENS 290

BROADWAY ½ mile north of GZ REST OF MANHATTAN 114 LIBERTY ST CLEANUP – boundary of GZ (See Jenkins 9/3/03) DUST AIR DUST AIR DUST AIR electron light (PLM) electron electron light electron (TEM) electron light electron (TEM) (TEM) (TEM) (PLM) (TEM) (PLM) (TEM)
Found traces, could have been background levels, in only one sample. EPA uses this one sole test result as the rationale for evacuating for 2 weeks professional abatement. Found no asbestos whatsoever. below concern, told press was below concern on 9/14/01 Refused to test by electron scopes for rest of Manhattan, even though published regulatory guidance in Federal Register requires electron scopes for small diameter fibers. “F---ing cowboys” refusal. Found asbestos at 1% or higher in around 33% of samples. EPA lied saying 1% asbestos was a health standard, as noted by IG and in my 7/4 report. This was the clearest example of a lie. The White House did not make EPA say this, however. TEM used by EPA, outdoor air only, many samples. Ground Zero Task Force study found concentrations indoors 100’s to 1000’s times higher than levels right on the pile at GZ. This is the “confined space” effect. No dilution from outdoor air. EPA falsification saying 70 structures per square millimeter was a health standard, as noted by IG and in my 7/4 report. EPA defending by saying that it was safe for short periods. Residents found levels above background & above what EPA found at 110 Liberty St. after EPA’s cleanup. EPA says that dust testing at 114 cannot be used to claim any risk, in contradiction to what they did at 290 Broadway. Residents did not use this method for their tests after the EPA cleanup. below 10-4 risk level for asbestos, but over standards for silica
