Abstract : THIS DOCUMENT IS A COMPREHENSIVE, MULTIPLE EXPOSURE PATHWAY, HUMAN HEALTH RISK ASSESSMENT PREPARED FOR THE PROPOSED BASIN F LIQUID INCINERATION PROJECT. THE SUBMERGED QUENCH INCINERATOR WILL TREAT BASIN F LIQUID AND HYDRAZINE RINSE WATER. THE OBJECTIVE OF THE RISK ASSESSMENT IS TO ESTABLISH CHEMICAL EMISSION LIMITS WHICH ARE PROTECTIVE OF HUMAN HEALTH. AVERAGE AND MAXIMUM LIFETIME DAILY INTAKES WERE CALCULATED FOR ADULTS, CHILDREN, AND INFANTS IN FOUR MAXIMUM EXPOSURE SCENARIOS UNDER BASE CASE AND SENSITIVITY CASE EMISSIONS CONDITION. IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT THE INCINERATION FACILITY POSES NEITHER CARCINOGENIC NOR NONCARCINOGENIC RISK TO ANY SENSITIVE POPULATION. THE ASSESSMENT IS DIVIDED INTO THE FOLLOWING SECTIONS: (1) INCINERATION FACILITY DESCRIPTION; (2) DESCRIPTION OF SURROUNDING AREA; (3) PROCESS OF POLLUTANT IDENTIFICATION AND SELECTION; AND (4) DETERMINATION OF EMISSION RATES FROM INCINERATION FACILITY.
