Protecting Communities from Air Toxics (also known as the Camden Waterfront South Air Toxics Pilot Project)


Printer-friendly version

NATA results predicted that South Camden is exposed to the highest air toxics exposures in New Jersey. The study employed a suite of inventory, modeling and monitoring methods to identify exposure to air toxics in the neighborhood.  The study also generated a set of risk reduction strategies. South Camden was already an area of concern as an Environmental Justice community. The project report is attached. It is/will be available on the Internet at the following location: http://www.nj.gov/dep/ej/airtoxics.htm. The author of the report is Joann Held, Project Manager, Bureau of Air Quality Evaluation, New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, P.O. Box 027, Trenton, NJ 08625; telepnone number (609) 633-1110.

1. How is this project best classified?


2. How are the assessment results summarized?

Other

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

Acute, Chronic, Cancer, Noncancer

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.
