EPA announced an agreement with New York City on the handling of PolyChlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs) in caulk.  In our blog post http://futureenv.blogspot.com/2008/04/pcbs-in-caulk-making-headlines.html and in our Autumn 2008 Newsletter (http://futureenvironmentdesigns.com/archives.htm?ID=4311505&s=16687015)
we fully discussed this issue.  This press release announces that NYC has entered into an agreement with EPA to develop a program in handling these materials.  The agreement should help protect children from being potentially exposed to PCBs in window caulk.
