EPA to scrutinize dust regs amid World Trade Center concerns
from Environment & Energy Publishing
U.S. EPA has agreed to consider clamping down on corrosive dust after watchdogs complained that the current standards failed to protect rescue workers after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. The agency committed to respond to those complaints by March 2016 with a tentative decision about whether or not to issue new federal corrosivity standards. A federal appeals court recently agreed to put a lawsuit over EPA's dust rules on hold while the agency considers its next moves.
