The report gives results of a study aimed at: estimating the maximum permissible continuous exposure to which individuals may be subjected; and computing permissible exposure to a multipollutant system so that the degree of control necessary for a waste stream can be computed. The report deals with three aspects of the problem: permissible continuous exposure for air pollutants; permissible continuous exposure for water pollutants; and permissible continuous exposure to carcinogens in ambient air. Calculated permissible levels for 24 hours exposure were compared with 23 substances for which standards have been set or proposed. In general, agreement was within an order of magnitude. An appendix to the report contains a nomograph for easy estimation of maximum ground level concentrations of pollutants issuing from point sources.
