The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency evaluated the air quality in and around areas affected by Hurricane Katrina to characterize the magnitude and composition of potentially toxic air pollution. The post-Katrina Monitoring Network consisted of 30 monitoring stations that collected 24-hour air samples, typically on 1-, 3-, and/or 6-day schedules, for up to 12 months of monitoring. Five sites were designated as comprehensive sites and analyzed ambient air samples for concentrations of 60 volatile organic compounds (VOC) and 15 carbonyl compounds. Three of the comprehensive sites also analyzed for 80 speciated nonmethane organic compounds (SNMOC), 106 semivolatile compounds (SVOC), and hexavalent chromium. Four of the comprehensive sites analyzed 13 metal compounds. The remaining 25 non-comprehensive sites analyzed metal compounds only. Overall, nearly 155,000 ambient air concentrations were measured from October 2005 to September 2006. A complete description of the monitoring network, sampling schedule, test methods, and statistical analyses of the ambient air monitoring data are presented in the enclosed report. The final data are also included as appendices.
