During the summer and fall of 1980 the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) conducted a comprehensive multimedia environmental monitoring program in the vicinity of the inactive hazardous wastes landfill known as Love Canal, located in Niagara Falls, New York. The studies conducted at Love Canal by EPA included a major hydrogeologic investigation, and the collection and analysis of approximately 6,000 environmental samples consisting of water, soil, sediment, air and biota. An extensive quality assurance/quality control program was applied to all phases of the analytical work to document the precision and accuracy of the monitoring data. Strict chain-of-custody procedures were also employed to assure the integrity of the monitoring data. In addition to the report presented in this Volume, two other Volumes have been prepared to document the Love Canal study. Volume II consists of a complete enumeration of all validated field samples collected at Love Canal and Volume III consists of a collection of statistical tabulations of the validated Love Canal monitoring data.
"This fact sheet summarizes the objectives, scope, findings, and conclusions of a comprehensive environmental monitoring study conducted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency at Love Canal, in Niagra Falls, New York."
