GLRPPR Sector Resource: Technical Fact Sheets and Emerging Contaminants

Title:
Technical Fact Sheets and Emerging Contaminants

Abstract:
The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Federal Facilities Restoration and Reuse Office (FFRRO) published these technical fact sheets, which provide brief summaries of contaminants of concern that present unique issues and challenges to the environmental community in general and to FFRRO in particular. Each fact sheet provides a brief summary of the contaminant, including physical and chemical properties, environmental and health impacts, existing federal and state guidelines, and detection and treatment methods. Sources of additional information about each contaminant are also included in the fact sheets. These fact sheets are intended for use by project managers and field personnel in addressing specific contaminants at cleanup sites and are updated annually to ensure they include timely information.
