Abstract:

This document focuses on the utility of North Carolina apatite and the ability of this mineral to immobilize lead in situ. The stabilization of lead will prevent transport of the lead in the vadose zone, which could subsequently lead to groundwater contamination. The stabilization of surface lead by the application of North Carolina apatite will also reduce the risk of airborne dust particulates containing lead.
