    Abstract Ambient air quality monitoring for lead and arsenic was
    undertaken near Exide Technologies Limited's (Exide)
    battery recycling plant in Petone, Lower Hutt, from 1
    March to 5 July 2009. Total suspended particulate in air
    was sampled continuously for 24-hour periods every second
    day using a high-volume sampler at two monitoring sites in
    the community: a commercial site on Waione Street and a
    residential site on Kirkcaldy Street. This study repeats the
    monitoring undertaken in 1999. Monitoring undertaken in
    2008 was thought not to adequately represent air quality
    due to periods of abnormal operation at Exide.
