Results to be published in April issue of Environmental Engineering Science A recent study by LSU engineers suggests that Katrina-flooded homes may contain harmful levels of contaminants, particularly aerosols and gases, which could expose first-responders, residents and any others entering such homes to serious and lasting health risks. The results could also be applied to similar flooding events that might occur in the future. Nicholas Ashley, Louis Thibodeaux and Kalliat Valsaraj, all from...
