September 12, 2001      911 Environmental Impact

       During a conference call, EPA Region 8 offers Region 2 free use of 30 to 40 electron microscopes, along with analysts, to test bulk dust samples in New York City. [Sources: Jenkins, 3/11/2002] EPA Region 8 has a contract with EMSL Laboratories for the microscopes, which they are using to evaluate soils at the Libby, Montana cleanup site (see (August 2001)) . Region 8 says they can get twelve of the scopes to Manhattan the next day. But William Muszynski, Region 2's Acting Administrator, rejects the offer in less than polite terms. “We don't want you fucking cowboys here,” Muszynski is later alleged to have said. “The best thing they could do is transfer you to Alaska.” [Sources: Jenkins, 3/11/2002, Jenkins, 7/4/2003] Instead, the EPA and other federal and city government agencies will use the outdated polarized light microscopy (PLM) testing method (see November 20, 1990) to test for the presence of asbestos fibers. [St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 1/14/2004; Seattle Post-Intelligencer, 2/28/01]
