Abstract : This report presents the results of calculations indicating that four munitions-related soil/sediment (or groundwater) pollutants identified at the Savanna Army Depot Activity present no serious health risk through the two exposure routes considered. The pollutants are TNT, DNT, 1,3,5-trinitrobenzene and RDX. The exposure routes are via ingestion of bottom-feeding fish or via Mississippi River water in downstream drinking water supplies.
