Abstract
Ambient air quality statistics have been updated to include 1978-1980 data for TSP, BaP, and BSO for the vicinities of the 50 major integrated steel facilities in the United States. For each mill, conclusions have been drawn concerning the impact of the mill as discerned through pollution roses and analyses of the conditions occurring on days on which the National Ambient Air Quality Standards have been exceeded. Trends in the 12-month running geometric means of TSP have been examined. Statistical summaries of the data are presented such that the attainment status of the vicinity of each mill could be easily determined. Data included in the analyses were composed of those available from the National Aerometric Data Bank as well as special study data obtained from EPA and state and local agencies. Seventy percent of the stations used in the analyses demonstrate long-term downward trends in TSP levels. During 1980, there were seven steel mills for which the nearby monitoring stations indicated no violations of the TSP standards. The methodology for the analysis is described and the results are presented in a separate section for each steel mill.
