A surface water risk assessment was conducted to predict the potential human and aquatic life impacts associated with 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin and 2,3,7,8-tetrachloro-dibenzofuran discharged from chlorine-bleaching pulp and paper mills. Using 1988 effluent data, other site-specific information, and simplifying assumptions, it was concluded that predicted exposures could represent significant implications for human health and aquatic life near the mills.
