Abstract
The report summarizes the results of an EPA-sponsored study to compile and evaluate information on short-term air action levels (AALs) used at Superfund sites. Because there is no simple or widely accepted method for estimating the risks of short-term exposures, there are no uniformly accepted short-term air action levels for emissions from Superfund sites. Air action levels have been established in a variety of ways, depending on waste types at the site, state guidelines, the potential for air emissions, cost, and individual project manager discretion. State and local guidelines are often based on occupational exposure limits (e.g., Threshold Limit Values) that have been divided by a safety factor to account for the differences in population and exposure of workers and residents. Some states are adopting other approaches, including the use of U.S. EPA-developed inhalation Reference Concentrations (RfCs).
