Cardno ChemRisk scientists have published a white paper titled "community-focused risk assessment: a valuable tool for manufactured gas plant site remediation". The white paper explains the importance of assessing a community's potential risk from chemical exposures during the remediation of an MGP site. The approach develops airborne fenceline concentration objections (FCOs) for chemicals of concern that are health-protective of all members of a community. Air monitoring concentrations collected during remediation are then compared to the FCOs to ensure that there is no potential risk to community members throughout remediation. Communication distributed throughout this process can also mitigate the concerns of community members and avoid negative publicity and possible litigation. This method can be applied to many remediation scenarios and is tailored towards a community more so than comparison of monitored concentrations to regulatory standards.
