The EPA suspects one factory is in violation.The EPA randomly collects 31 independent specimens of smoke from the factory smokestack,one for each day in October and performs extensive analysis. Results are 147,151,122,107,136,139,141,153,138,111,155,147,165,148,150,123,106,137,138,142,154,139,109,157,146,168,145,153,120,104 and 130.
