Versar conducted asbestos air monitoring at eleven family housing areas FHAs throughout the United States. The objective of the sampling was to evaluate potential air impacts in the family housing units from asbestos containing materials identified in earlier assessments. This evaluation was necessary to clarify the environmental issues prior to sale or realignment of the property. The asbestos air monitoring indicated that three of the FHAs contained no airborne asbestos above the detection limit, and five contained airborne asbestos below the USATHAMA set limit of 0.005 fibers per cubic centimeter fcc. Three FHAs contained airborne asbestos at or above 0.005 fcc, but a statistical test indicated that, in all cases, the indoor air was not statistically different from the outdoor air. No further testing is recommended. No reason was identified to discontinue the use of the FHAS. Family Housing Areas, Asbestos Air Monitoring.
