The primary purpose of the document is to present procedures for conducting site-specific exposure assessments to dioxin-like compounds. In addition, information is provided on the levels of these compounds found in various media, identification of the possible associated sources, and estimation of the resulting exposure levels. The document is a revised version of the 1988 draft document. This effort represents a substantial expansion in scope to include all compounds that exhibit dioxin-like toxicity. The types of sites covered in the document include incinerators, landfills, and other areas involving contaminated soils. The procedures identify possible exposure pathways associated with these sites, present fate models to estimate media concentrations at the point of exposure, and suggest ways to estimate contact rates and resulting exposure levels.
