    Abstract This report summarises the results of Greater Wellington Regional Council’s
    arsenic in air monitoring in Wainuiomata, Lower Hutt. This investigation found
    higher arsenic concentrations in PM10 collected by the standard method were
    higher than the Ministry for the Environment’s ambient air quality guideline for
    inorganic arsenic. The source of arsenic in air was attributed to the burning of
    CCA-treated timber in domestic wood burners.
