  Developing and Implementing a Lead Dust Outreach, Monitoring, and Education Program in Your Community, Syracuse Lead Dust Project (106 pp, 1.63 MB) (EPA/625/R-02/014) February 2003

EPA has developed a technology transfer document for the EMPACT Syracuse Lead Dust Project. The Lead Dust Project is designed to measure the lead dust content in homes and public buildings within the City of Syracuse, New York. The project also contains an educational component that targets families and landlords in an effort to inform them about lead dust hazards and appropriate control measures. Aided by community-based organization partners, high-efficiency particulate air vacuums are made available for loan.

A technology transfer document has been prepared as a case-study to highlight how this household lead dust project was designed and implemented. Emphasis has been placed on providing success stories and lessons learned from this and other lead dust projects in an effort to assist new communities who are interested in adopting a comparable program.
