Document Number: E8-9742
Type: Notice
Date: 2008-05-02
Agency: Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, Department of Health and Human Services
This report responds to a request from the International Joint Commission (IJC), the binational organization that works to implement the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement (GLWQA) between the U.S. and Canada. The GLWQA calls for the two nations to define ``the threat to human health from critical pollutants'' found in the Great Lakes basin. This notice announces the availability of the draft report entitled ``Selected Information on Chemical Releases Within Great Lakes Counties Containing Areas of Concern (AOC) (Public Comment Draft 2008)''. This report summarizes previously-published public health assessment products and chemical release information for the 26 U.S. AOCs and 54 counties that are in close geographic proximity to those AOCs. This is a descriptive report that does not make associations between health outcomes and chemical exposures. The compilation of environmental data, gathered by ATSDR and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), is intended to help decision-makers set future priorities.

Notice of the Revised Priority List of Hazardous Substances That Will Be the Subject of Toxicological Profiles
Document Number: E8-4339
Type: Notice
Date: 2008-03-06
Agency: Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, Department of Health and Human Services
The Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA or Superfund), as amended by the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act of 1986 (SARA), requires that ATSDR and the Environmental Protection Agency(EPA) prepare a Priority List of Hazardous Substances commonly found at facilities on the CERCLA National Priority List (NPL). The Priority List of Hazardous Substances includes substances that have been determined to be of greatest public health concern to persons at or near NPL sites. CERCLA as amended also requires that ATSDR and EPA periodically revise the Priority List of Hazardous Substances. Pursuant to these CERCLA mandates, the agencies announce that based on the most recent information available, they have developed and now make available a revised CERCLA Priority List of 275 Hazardous Substances. Because CERCLA as amended also requires ATSDR to prepare and to periodically revise toxicological profiles on hazardous substances included in the priority list, each priority list substance is a potential toxicological profile subject, as well as a candidate for identification of priority data needs. In addition to the Priority List of Hazardous Substances, ATSDR has developed a Completed Exposure Pathway Site Count Report. This report lists the number of sites or events at which ATSDR is involved and wherein a substance has been found in a completed exposure pathway (CEP). This report is included in the Support Document of the Priority List.
