This document provides the health effects basis to support establishing Maximum Contaminant Level Goals (MCLG) values for chlorine dioxide, chlorite and chlorate. To set these values, data on pharmacokinetics, human exposure, acute and chronic toxicity to animals and humans, epidemiology and mechanisms of toxicity were evaluated. Specific emphasis is placed on literature data providing dose-response information. While the literature search and evaluation performed in support of this document were comprehensive, only the reports considered most pertinent in the derivation of the Maximum Contaminant Level Goals are cited in the document. The comprehensive literature search in support of this document includes information published up to 1990.
