Abstract : This report evaluates the potential for health impact from various volatile organic compounds (VOCs) to students at Southern Polytechnical College that may come in contact with water in Rottenwood Creek. Rottenwood Creek is in part fed by two streams that flow offsite from two retention basins located on Air Force Plant 6, Marietta, Georgia. The evaluation was requested by Aeronautical System Center/Environmental Management Restoration (ASC/EMR). The evaluation uses the existing Environmental Protection Agency 'Risk Assessment Guidance for Superfund Volume I Human Health Evaluation Manual (Part A)'. Based on the evaluation, the potential exposure and associated health risks to students are negligible and the water is safe.
