The report supplements Volume I (PB-276 919) of the two-volume 1977 EPA report that introduced a methodology to establish Multimedia Environmental Goals (MEGs) for chemical pollutants. It summarizes the original methodology and introduces minor improvements. Improvements include the assignment of a unique identification number to each MEG compound and modification of the original model used to derive MEG values for land or solid waste. Its appendices include: revised category descriptions, an updated master list of organic compounds, a candidate list of compounds to be considered for future MEGs, tabulated discharge MEG values, and hazard potential values. It also includes graphical summaries of MEGs for 586 organic chemicals. The Supplement is to be used in coordination with MEG Volumes III and IV (PB80-115108 and PB80-115116) which contain background information summaries and MEG charts for organic compounds in the new MEGs master list.
