Air quality, meteorological, botanical, and soils data were collected from a six-station network located around the plant. Data from these stations were evaluated to characterize ambient air quality in the area and to compare with National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS). The primary criteria used in analyzing TSP data were 24-hour primary and secondary excursions; 24-hour primary and 3-hour secondary excursions were used for SO2 concentration which exceeded the 3-hour secondary standard. Where possible, ambient metals data were compared with values measured by the National Air Surveillance Network (NASN) as reported in National Trends in Trace Metals in Ambient Air, 1965-1974. Metals concentrations in soils were compared with the mean values found in the earth's crust as reported in Origin and Distribution of the Elements. Sulfates data were compared with sulfates health effects research data as reported in Statement of Sulfates Research Approach. Potted plants exposed to ambient SO2 levels near the National Zinc Company plvisuallyvisiually compared to similar potted plants grown at a reference station approximately four miles south of the plant. A similar comparison of trees in the area was made using false color infrared aerial photographs. In addition, an in-plant investigation of the process and air pollution control operations was conducted by NEIC during the period July 30 to August 2, 1977.
