Urban Community Air Toxics Monitoring Project, Paterson City, NJ (UCAMPP)


Printer-friendly version

The overall objective of the Urban Community Air Toxics Monitoring Project, Paterson City, NJ (UCAMPP) is to obtain data which will assist the NJDEP in formulating risk reduction strategies related to air toxics. UCAMPP will determine which pollutants are a health concern in an urban environment, where they come from, and then identify risk reduction strategies. This will be accomplished through the characterization of local air toxics related to different land use patterns in a highly industrialized urban community. Air toxics monitors will be strategically placed at monitoring stations in community-oriented locations that will capture industrial, commercial and mobile source dominated emissions. Two of the monitoring stations will be located at Paterson public schools allowing UCAMPP to measure the community's potential for exposure. Monitoring will occur every six days over the course of 1 year.

1. How is this project best classified?

Could be classified as either a Human Health Assessment, Toxicity Assessment, Hazard Assessment, Risk Assessment, Risk Reduction Strategies

2. How are the assessment results summarized?

Other

3. What risk types or hazards are considered in the project?

Air toxics

4. List any additional features that describe the scope of the project.


5. Is the risk assessment done for an individual source (e.g., a permitted source) or for multiple sources in the area?


6. Which pollutants are assessed?

6.a. Are they assessed individually, or on a cumulative basis?

6.c. Additional Comments:

7. Does the project consider ambient/background concentrations in determining exposure?


8. What conservative assumptions are made?

9. What "best estimate" assumptions are made?

10. What cancer and non-cancer toxicity dose response values are used? Do they differ from the EPA IRIS values? What is the data source for these values?


11. What assumptions are made when a match from chemical emitted to toxicity value is not exact?


12. What is the basis for emission estimates used in the project -- actual or allowable?


13. What exposure pathways are assessed?


14. What assumptions are made in considering exposure pathways?


15. For inhalation exposure assessments, is exposure modeling conducted (i.e., consideration of changes in pollutant inhalation concentrations in different locations frequented at different times by populations of interest)? Or is there an assumption of continuous exposure to outdoor air over a certain time period?


16. Describe the peer review process for the study, if any.
