Air quality risk assessments of airborne toxic chemical releases are performed by the Source air dispersion modeling staff. These assessments are performed as required by the Emergency Planning and Community Right-To-Know Act or upon requests from clients for emergency planning information. The risk assessment studies include hazard identification and vulnerability analyses by Source emergency response specialists and risk analyses using EPA approved air dispersion modeling procedures. The Source risk assessment procedures comply with the EPA risk assessment guidelines and the reports are presented in language, tables and figures which are tailored for easy understanding by the public.
