has individual volumes 3381250 Total Petroleum Hydrocarbon Criteria Working Group series: Volume 5: Human health risk-based evaluation of petroleum release sites: Implementing the working group approach
The overlying theme to this series is the importance of exposure potential when defining human health risk. The fate and transport of a chemical or mixture defines the exposure route, and in conjunction with receptor properties, concentrations at receptors. If fate and transport is not considered, unrealistic human health risks could be calculated, resulting in misinformed decisions about site clean-up and regulatory guidance. We hope you find these documents to be useful in your efforts to evaluate and determine acceptable risk-based criteria at petroleum sites.
