Abstract : A study of ambient air quality, requested as a result of an employee grievance, was performed at the South Annex of the Air Force Aeronautical Chart and Information Center, 8900 South Broadway, St. Louis, Missouri. Data gathered on concentrations of sulfur dioxide, sulfation rates, hydrogen sulfide and sulfuric acid mist, are supplemented by data from other sources. Sulfur dioxide concentrations, sulfation rates and particulate loadings were found to be significantly above the ambient air quality and emission standards set by St. Louis County. Several pollutants were found to be meteorologically traceable to an industrial titanium pigment plant. Pollutant concentrations, while not above industrially established threshold limit values, are in the area of 'potential health hazards'. Recommendations are given. (Author)
