Abstract A preliminary industrial hygiene survey was conducted at Sante Fe Centralized Tie facility (SIC-2491), Somerville, Texas in October, 1979. Area air monitoring was conducted. The facility treated mixed hardwoods and conifers for cross ties or bridge timbers using petroleum oil/creosote or chromated copper arsenate pressure treatment systems. The authors note that because the blank filters indicated higher concentrations of extractable material than either sample tube, valid air concentrations could not be calculated.
