Description: Special Report
Abstract: A worksheet for use in the field was developed to inventory building materials in four northeastern cities in support of the EPA Acid Rain program. The initial form was tested for two of the cities; the redesigned and simplified form discussed in this report was used in the two remaining cities. The worksheet was designed to provide information on the census tract, land use type and sampling frame; the dimensions and type of building; the lot size; the materials distribution percentages in the foundation, first story and all above stories; and the surface area and material types for the roof, roof-mounted apparatus (vents, flues, stacks, skylights and flashing), chimneys, rain gutters, downspouts and fences. The worksheet is recommended for future surveys of building materials in other cities.
