(1/11/06) On Jan. 6, 2006, EPA released results from soil samples taken at the request of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) at three potential temporary resident housing locations in St. Bernard Parish, La. Samples from Judge Perez Drive and Corinne Baptist Church locations in Violet, and Fanz Mobile Estate Park in Toca will be used to help FEMA determine the suitability of these locations for temporary housing for residents.

EPA has a mission assignment to sample up to 25 sites for FEMA, and will continue to sample locations as requested.

All results will be posted: epa.gov/katrina/testresults/index.html#housing
