    Methodology for the PCB analysis is described, and results are tabulated. Of the 51 transformers and disconnects in use at GJAO, 15 unites were determined to be PCB-contaminated or filled with PCBs. This number falls within EPA's estimate of 25 to 40 percent of all transformers in use being at least contaminated.   Activists warn that PCBs — toxic industrial chemicals — contaminate thousands of U.S. schools who on Wednesday released a report on the extent of PCB contamination in the nation’s.
