The Installation Restoration Program Toxicology Guide. Volume 2
LITTLE (ARTHUR D) INC CAMBRIDGE MA
One of the objectives of the U. S. Air Force Installation Restoration Program is to provide individuals responsible for the management and implementation of the Installation Restoration Program IRP with information to evaluate the health hazards associated with actual or potential contamination of drinking water supplies. Each volume of the IRP Toxicology Guide outlines the environmental fate and effects, exposure pathways, toxicity and sampling and analysis techniques for a selected list of chemical contaminants. The material provided is intended as an overview of key topic areas no attempt was made to provide a comprehensive review. The Guide is not a technical report. Users are encouraged to read the Introduction of Volume 1 of the IRP Toxicology Guide before applying chemical-specific information. The 35 chemicals included in Volume 1 of the IRP Toxicology Guide resulted from an Occupational and Environmental Health Laboratory OEHL review of all IRP Phase II reports available in March 1984. The selected chemicals were detected in ground water as part of the Phase II effort. An additional 24 chemicals are included in Volume 2 of the IRP Toxicology Guide. Volume 3 of the Guide is in preparation. Volume 3 will include pesticides and POL petroleum, oil and lubricant products of interest of the USAF Medical Service.
