In 1985, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) (Assistant Administrator for Water) and the United States Department of the Army (Deputy for Environment, Safety, and Occupational Health) established a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to develop EPA Drinking Water Health Advisories (HAs) for Army environmental contaminants (MOU, 1991). This collaboration has resulted in a review of the toxicological data base for selected munitions chemicals and the development of recommended exposure limits for specific durations (1-day, 10-day, longer-term (7 years), and lifetime (70 years)). Both cancer and noncancer endpoints of toxicity have been considered in these munitions assessments. This document is a brief review of some toxicological endpoints considered in the assessment of selected munitions chemicals.
