Abstract

This case study was a critical investigation of the analytical methodologyand exposure assessment components of an intervention that led to the closure of a polyurethane foaming plant in Glenola, N.C., where plant neighborsreported a wide range of adverse health effects. Resident complaints and reports of nuisance odors and health effects persisted for many years, coming to a head in late 1995 and early 1996. Central to state and federal agency activities was the determination of the concentrations of air contaminants including toluene diisocyanate (TDI) at the plant fence line to establishan empirical foundation for resident complaints. Well over 2000 air concentration measurements were collected in the 18-month period prior to intervention and plant closure in September 1997. Results showed that flawed methodology, including poor quality assurance and improper interpretation of thedata, may have led to improper conclusions and the inappropriate closing of this facility. Agency data did not show that ambient air concentrations of TDI at the plant fence line exceeded any required or recommended concentration limit. Furthermore, the Identity and concentration of other air contaminants were not thoroughly investigated. Key lessons learned are that suchinterventions must be based on well-designed and executed exposure assessments. Resultant risk determinations must be based on sound science and methods.
