    Abstract

    In 1989 the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) initiated the Lead-Based Paint Abatement Demonstration Study in seven urban areas across the U.S. in order to assess the cost, worker hazards, and short-term efficacy of various lead-based paint abatement methods. One question which was not answered by the HUD Abatement Demonstration was that of the long-term efficacy of the abatement methods. Therefore, in 1990 the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) initiated the Comprehensive Abatement Performance (CAP) Study to address this question. This paper presents conclusions from the CAP Study regarding the efficacy of the HUD Demonstration abatement procedures, as well as results concerning the correlations among lead levels observed in dust and soil at various household locations.
