The Environmental Protection Agency is promulgating National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAPs) for Radionuclides. An Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) has been prepared in support of the rulemaking. The EIS consists of the following three volumes: Volume I - Risk Assessment Methodology. The document contains chapters on hazard identification, movement of radionuclides through environmental pathways, radiation dosimetry, estimating the risk of health effects resulting from exposure to low levels of ionizing radiation, and a summary of the uncertainties in calculations of dose and risks. Volume II - Risk Assessments. The document contains a chapter on each radionuclide source category studied. The chapters include an introduction, category description, process description, control technology, health impact assessment, supplemental control technology, and cost. It has an appendix which contains the inputs to all the computer runs used to generate the risk assessment. Volume III - Economic Assessment. The document has chapters on each radionuclide source category studied. Each chapter includes an introduction, industry profile, summary of emissions, risk levels, the benefits and costs of emission controls, and economic impact evaluations.
