Re: dioxin soil concentrations
>Does anyone know of recent numbers on background dioxin soil concentrations?
For the UK: HMIP report 1995
Urban locations (Mean of 5 samples) = total I-TEQ 28.37 ng/kg
Rural locations (Mean of 11 samples) = total I-TEQ 5.17 ng/kg
Do you want the breakdown for the 17 congeners of interest? It would be
easier to fax - have you a fax number?
The above report gives data for many samples, but it is all given in terms
of total dioxin per congener, not in I-TEQ equivalents. I-TEQ values are
only given for the limited sets of samples above, and then they only give
the mean, min and max for each congener, not the values for each sample.
I also have ICI's monitored soil samples for near their site at Runcorn,
England, and some samples in Hampshire, England. Do you want details?
