Wallkill Lead Monitoring

These sites are the only routine lead monitoring sites in upstate New York. They are located in the vicinity of RSR Corporation and were established as high priority SLAMS lead monitors. They are source oriented monitoring sites. The two sites on Ballard Road are upwind and the Scotchtown site is downwind of RSR. In August 2011 an additional low volume PM10 sampler was put in place for daily mass and lead analysis at the Wakefern site when measurements from the prior winter showed unusually high values for a couple of sample dates
