The Office of Toxic Substances of the Environmental Protection Agency has sponsored a Nationwide survey to determine the impact of point and non-point sources on waterborne sources of asbestos. This survey covers both natural sites, in which asbestos containing rocks are prevalent, and man made sources (plants producting asbestos-containing products). Additionally, it provides for sampling water supplies in a number of cities and towns. This report records the results of the analyses of water from the ten cities housing Regional Headquarters of the Environmental Protection Agency. These cities are: Boston, Mass., - New York, New York, - Philadelphia, Pa., - Atlanta, Ga., - Chicago, Ill., - Dallas, Texas, - Kansas City, Missouri, - Denver, Colorado, - San Francisco, California, and Seattle, Washington. The determination of asbestos content was by a transmission electron microscopic method.
