Abstract
This report is an assessment of the ecological effects of arsenic and other associated contaminants emitted from nonferrous smelters on economically important plant and animal species in the human food chain. The objective of this study was to evaluate the latest information available on air, water, and solid waste discharges of arsenic and other heavy metals, along with sulfur oxide emissions from nonferrous smelters and associated ecological effects. To accomplish this objective, the study focused primarily on three areas of concern: (1) the extent of the ecological damage around primary and secondary smelters; (2) the extent that arsenic, by itself or in combination with other chemicals, caused this ecological damage; and (3) how present or projected levels of emissions, including no discharge, affect the levels of damage.
