Abstract : This appendix presents the results of the data evaluation performed to determine the chemicals of potential concern (COPCs) for use in the Galena Baseline Risk Assessment. COPCs for Galena Baseline Risk Assessment were identified, in general, following guidance in Chapter 5 (Data Evaluation) of the Risk Assessment Guidance for Superfund, Volume I Human Health Evaluation Manual (Part A) (USEPA, 1989) and the Guidance for Data Useability in Risk Assessment (USEPA, 1992a). COPCs were identified for both organic and inorganic analytes in soils and waters. This was done for each of the following evaluated sites for the quantitative risk assessment: Fire Protection Training Area (FPTA), Galena POL (POL-G), and the six source areas of the West Unit--Waste Accumulation Area (WAA), Million Gallon Hill (MGH), Power Plant UST No.49, JP-4 Fillstands, Building 1845, and Building 1700. For the quantitative risk assessment, data were compiled from 1992 through 1994. Soil data were divided into surface and subsurface classifications, and water data were divided into surface water and groundwater.
