In the village Weurt (municipality Beuningen, Netherlands) an increasedincidence of cancer was found. Therefore, a survey to assess the quality of the ambient air was carried out during 4 weeks in the months January and February of 1997 in Weurt and Nijmegen-West. The public health aspects of the air were compared with a similar region (Nijmegen-Oost). The maximum permissible concentration was not exceeded for any of the materials that were measured (benzene, formaldehyde, PAH, Cd, Be, Cr, Ni, As). Differences between the average concentration for the metals, formaldehyde and benzene were not significant. Only for specific PAHs (emissions from traffic) the concentration was higher, although not alarming. Measurements should be carried out for a longer period to determine the total burden of air pollution in Weurt. 3 figs., 1 tab., 9 refs.
