The final EPA Integrated Report on the Three-City Lead Study basically confirms the findings of the individual city reports. The Integrated Report concludes that: (1) When soil is a significant source of lead in the child's environment, the abatement of that soil will result in a reduction in exposure that will, under certain conditions, cause a reduction in childhood blood lead concentrations. (2) Although these conditions for a reduction in blood are not fully understood, it is likely that four factors are important: (1) The past history of exposure of the child to lead, as reflected in the preabatement blood lead; (2) the magnitude of the reduction in soil lead concentrations; (3) the magnitude of the other sources of lead exposure, relative to soil; and (4) a direct exposure pathway between soil and the child.
