Leaaf Environmental, LLC (Leaaf)’s Environmental Health and Safety Division was contacted to aid in conducting a baseline ambient area air monitoring survey on behalf of Beta Engineering at a proposed substation site located in South Padre Island, Texas. The site is adjacent to a water treatment plant that is known for utilizing chemicals that produce hydrogen sulfide and potentially chlorides.

This project was completed as part of determining if municipal and industrial operations might be responsible for increasing the ambient concentration of eleven (11) constituents of concern (COCs) to levels higher than those found in unaffected areas. An ambient area air monitoring sampling plan developed by Leaaf and approved by Beta Engineering was conducted for two consecutive days in accordance with National Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and Internal Ion Chromatography Method 14 (IC-14) sampling and analytical methods. Upon receipt of laboratory analysis for samples collected, a final report included an executive summary, subject property background information, sampling methodology, summary findings, and recommendations for the COCs detected during the sampling period.
