The report gives results of a study aimed at developing a means for estimating cancer mortality as a function of carcinogen concentration in drinking water. Cancer risk data for cigarette smokers was treated by the method of standard additions to provide an estimate of ambient carcinogen levels in drinking water. A similar treatment was carried out on lung cancer risk data to give an estimate of carcingen levels in ambient air.
