This environmental assessment quantifies the water quality-related benefits associated with achievement of the proposed BAT (Best Available Technology) and PSES (Pretreatment Standards for Existing Sources) controls for commercial industrial waste combustors (IWCs). Based on site-specific analyses of current conditions and changes in discharges associated with the proposal, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimated instream pollutant concentrations for 17 priority and nonconventional pollutants from direct and indirect discharges using stream dilution modeling. The potential impacts and benefits to aquatic life are projected by comparing the modeled instream pollutant concentrations to published EPA aquatic life criteria guidance or to toxic effect levels. Potential adverse human health effects and benefits are projected by: (1) comparing estimated instream concentrations to health-based water quality toxic effect levels or criteria; and (2) estimating the potential reduction of carcnogenic risk and noncarcinogenic hazard (systemic) from consuming contaminated fish or drinking water. Upper-bound individual cancer risks, population risks, and systemic hazards are estimated using modeled instream pollutant concentrations and standards EPA assumptions. Modeled pollutant concentrations in fish and drinking water are used to estimate cancer risk and systemic hazards among the general population, sport anglers and their families, and subsistence anglers and their families.
