Abstract:

One of the objectives of the U.S. Air Force Installation Restoration Program IRP is to provide individuals responsible for the management and implementation of the IRP with information to evaluate the health hazards associated with actual or potential contamination of drinking water supplies. For chemical in the IRP Toxicology Guide, the environmental fate, exposure pathways, toxicity, sampling and analysis methods and state and federal regulatory status are outlined. This report presents information on cadmium, chromium, mercury, zinc, arsenic, nickel and copper. Attention was focused on those metal compounds with high use profiles, those commonly encountered as environmental contaminants, those for which substantial toxicologic data were available, or those for which regulatory data are available.
