Kanawha Valley Toxics Screening Study

Printer-friendly version

Twenty known or suspected cancer-causing chemicals were evaluated out of more than 450 chemicals listed in an inventory of Kanawha Valley air emissions prepared by the West Virginia Air Pollution Control Commission. Potential community exposure to these 20 chemicals was estimated through modeling within 4 distinct geographic zones: Belle, Charleston/south Charleston, Institute and Nitro. The Study was designed to provide an initial understanding of selected toxic pollutants which are present in the ambient environment of the Kanawha Valley, to identify possible sources of these pollutants, and to provide a sense of the nature and relative priority of potential health risks associated with public exposure to these chemicals.
