If appropriate, the ATSDR also conducts public health assessments when petitioned by concerned individuals. If approved by the ATSDR, state agencies may also conduct public health assessments. , drinking water) to determine if measured concentrations are safe under default exposure conditions. Comparison values are used as screening values in the preliminary identification of contaminants of concern at a hazardous waste site. A contaminant of concern is a chemical found at the site that the health professionals select to be analyzed for potential human health effects.
Any concentration above this federal limit in the soil or sand on the site must be reported. Initial monitoring and chemical testing should be conducted to target those contaminants that may have resulted from operations over previous years or decades. A more general surveillance is also needed to identify a broader suite of contaminants. This is particularly important in soil and groundwater because their rates of migration (Q) are slow 26 Engineering the Risks of Hazardous Wastes compared to the rates usually found in air and surface water transport.
Thermal treatment of the residuals stored at the site from the leachate treatment facility and other associated Love Canal waste materials. On-site disposal of any nonhazardous residuals from the thermal treatment or incineration process. Off-site EPA-approved thermal treatment and/or land disposal of the stored Love Canal waste materials. The sewer and creek sediments and other waste materials were subsequently shipped off-site for final disposal; this remedial action was completed in March 2000.
