Abstract : The Defense Priority Model (DPM) is intended to permit the use of site-specific monitoring data to refine priorities for remedial actions. In DPM, the health and ecological hazards of contaminants identified through monitoring are assessed using toxicological benchmarks and/or bioaccumulation factors that relate the concentrations measured to concentrations or doses that may be toxic. This user's manual provides (1) detailed instructions for rating contaminated sites using DPM, (2) worked-out examples of DPM applications, (3) lists of toxicity benchmarks and/or bioaccumulation factors for hazardous chemicals identified at Air Force installations, and (4) blank score sheets.
