The report is one of a series of reports which will be used by EPA in responding to the Congressional mandate under the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1977 to determine whether atmospheric emissions of cadmium pose a threat to public health. The report identifies the population exposed to specified cadmium levels from selected point sources. The sources considered are iron and steel mills, municipal incinerators, primary smelters (zinc, copper, lead, and cadmium), and secondary smelters (copper and zinc). Municipal incinerators are the chief contributors to the total population exposed. Primary zinc and primary copper smelters are estimated to cause the highest concentrations.
