HEALTH CONSULTATION

LAKE MEAD NATIONAL RECREATIONAL AREA
OVERTON, CLARK COUNTY, NEVADA


CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS

  1. Confirmatory sampling data indicated that concentrations of DDE, endrin, and PCBs in fish were comparable to or less than those previously reported.

  2. Based on the new analytical data, the health hazard associated with eating fish from Las Vegas Bay would be less than or comparable to those previously estimated.

  3. The reported concentrations of organochlorine pesticide and PCB residues in channel catfish and striped bass from Las Vegas Bay do not pose a public health hazard for sport fishermen.


Kenneth G. Orloff, Ph.D., DABT
