Summary
From 1929 to 1975 an estimated 1.4 billion pounds of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB) were produced in the United States. The 1976 Toxic Substances Control Act specifically cited PCBs as a threat to human health and restricted the manufacture and use of equipment containing this substance. The military services have significant quantities of PCBs in equipment such as electrical transformers and capacitors on their installations. At the request of the Chairman of the Subcommittee on Environment, Energy, and Natural Resources, House Committee on Government Operations, GAO assessed the Department of Defense's (DoD) efforts to identify, replace, monitor, store, and dispose of equipment containing PCBs
