ATSDR Brownfield and Land Reuse Site Tool- Rapid Site Screening/Chemical Exposure

Dec 04 2012 Environmental and Public Health | Comments Off on ATSDR Brownfield and Land Reuse Site Tool- Rapid Site Screening/Chemical Exposure

ATSDR Brownfield and Land Reuse Site Tool

This Tool is a rapid site screening and multiple chemical exposure dose calculating tool that allows users to assess sites by past/future use, institutional controls, sensitive populations, and suspected or confirmed contamination.

A survey of local health departments indicated a need for a system to:

  • Provide inventory of sites
  • Store records for public inquiry of sites
  • Respond to inquiries
  • Catalogue institutional controls, health concerns, violations, spills, contaminants, and emergency response events related to the property.
  • Provide a “How To” guide to conduct a site visit
  • Evaluate exposures by defining exposed populations and sub-groups, multiple exposure pathways, user specific ingestion rates for population groups or use defaults
  • Calculate doses using ranges of exposure parameters, 95% Upper Confidence Limits, geometric mean, and other statistical parameters.
  • Test the data for Normal/Log Normal distributions. Import and process laboratory data (10,000 data points per minute throughput)
  • Verify calibrations.
  • Troubleshoot analytical problems.
  • Set up quality-assurance or quality-control programs.
  • Conduct research and development.
