The goal of the human health criteria and values for the Great Lakes and their tributaries is the protection of humans from unacceptable exposure to toxicants from consumption of contaminated fish, drinking water and water related to recreational activities. Emphasis is on protection of the individual in evaluating toxicity information and its application in the derivation of criteria and values. Exposure assumptions follow trends and activities for the general population as a region and also attempt to protect sensitive subpopulations.
