The Headquarters, Air Combat Command HQ ACC bioenvironmental Engineering Office requested that the Environmental Sciences Branch ALOEMH accomplish a site visit and prepare a data gap sampling and analysis plan DGSAP. This plan identifies information needed for the PHA. ATSDR-developed public health assessment methodologies and future land use scenario considerations were used to arrive at DGSAP recommendations. The PHA methodologies focus on public health and sometimes require different information than needed for the Environmental Protection Agency EPA directed Installation Restoration Program IRP process.
