FEEDBACK ON HANFORD RIVER CORRIDOR BASELINE RISK ASSESSEMNT: VOLUME II: HUMAN HEALTH RISK ASSESSMENT (DRAFT C). The U.S. Department of Energy – Richland Operations Office (DOE-RL) is making available the River Corridor Baseline Risk Assessment (RCBRA): Vol. II: Human Health Risk Assessment (Draft C).
This technical document provides a comprehensive human health risk assessment for the Hanford River Corridor that considers relevant sources of contamination, exposure pathways, and contaminants to evaluate current and potential risks posed by hazardous substance releases. Volume II will be used, along with the ecological risk assessment (Volume I currently under development), to support final River Corridor cleanup decisions. The results from this baseline risk assessment and other information will be used to develop final cleanup decisions that will be protective of human health and the environment. Cleanup alternatives will be evaluated in future proposed plans that will go out for public review and comment. Final cleanup decisions will be documented in records of decision.
DOE is not holding a formal comment period on this document, but welcomes and appreciates public feedback. Input will be considered when revising the document.
