The document presents the results of a study of the toxic health effects of exposure to dischloroethylenes (DCE's). Included are general information on the properties of DCE's, the kinetics of DCE's, sources of human exposure, the health effects to animals and humans, mechanisms of toxicity, and the quantification of toxicological effects. Also provided is an extensive list of references. The document is meant as a guide for establishing maximum contaminant level goals (MCLG's) for this chemical in drinking water.
