(2/9/06) On Feb. 3, 2006, EPA posted data from samples taken Jan. 18 at the Chapperon Development Corporation Temporary Housing Location in Louisiana. EPA collected 20 soil samples and three surface water samples at the Chapperon Development Property in Meraux, St. Bernard Parish. These samples 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.
