ace metals and organics.

For example, exposures to high lead concentrations in aging homes are a critical health concern, particularly when children are exposed. Saliva concentrations have been shown to correlate with blood lead levels based upon analysis of a spot saliva specimen. This system also may be applicable to a broad range of drugs and environmental contaminants.

New washers clean up in energy savings - Multifamily complex owners could save electricity and money if they replaced washers in coin-operated laundry rooms with energy-efficient alternatives, according to a study Pacific Northwest National Laboratory conducted at Leisure World, a California senior community.

That is good news for Southern California Edison, which funded the study to determine potential energy savings from installation of new washers in multifamily buildings. The savings could be significant for Leisure World, which runs 1,000 coin-operated washers. Nearly all of the facilitys 18,000 residents live in multifamily buildings.

PNNLs study shows that, over their lifetime, energy-efficient washers would offset the higher purchase price with energy savings. The energy-efficient washers installed and analyzed at Leisure World used up to 66 percent less electricity and up to 60 percent less water than older washers.

Washer performance also fared well with the residents, as 72 percent surveyed expressed satisfaction with washer performance.

Mexicos liquid gold - A century ago annual floods ravaged the great Mexico City Basin. Today, however, Mexico Citys 20 million inhabitants are rapidly depleting their life-giving aquifer and threatening their future water supply.

To address this critical issue, Battelle researchers at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory have partnered with experts from Mexico to dev
