||Four landfills known to contain large quantities of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) were monitored for atmospheric emissions: Three of these were uncontrolled and contained large numbers of electrical capacitors, many of which were scattered on the surface and leaking PCB askarel fluids. The other is a state-of-the-art PCB waste landfill designed to exceed the requirements of the Toxic Substances Control Act of 1978 (ToSCA) for PCB disposal. High atmospheric PCB concentrations were measured at the uncontrolled sites, while air levels were at or near background at the ToSCA-designed landfill. PCBs were detected at low levels in gas vents at the latter site.
