HEALTH CONSULTATION

IGAYAC ENVIRONMENTAL SAMPLES
TORRANCE, LOS ANGELES COUNTY, CALIFORNIA


CONCLUSIONS

  1. Contaminants detected in a soil sample from the yard are not at levels of health concern.
  2. An unidentified substance from the attic contained numerous organochlorine pesticides. This contamination would not be expected to pose a public health hazard unless residents were exposed to it on a frequent and long-term basis.
  3. Fungi detected in indoor air samples are typical of indoor air and do not pose a health threat.

RECOMMENDATIONS

     

  1. Confirm the presence of organochlorine contamination in the attic.
  2. Test indoor dust samples to determine whether contamination has migrated to living areas of the house.
