Waste Characteristics

  • The values for toxicity and hazardous waste quantity are assigned in the same manner as for the resident population threat (Section 18-4 of this training), except:

    • Delete from consideration any area of observed contamination that cannot be assigned a value for attractiveness/accessibility greater than 0.

    • Because the toxicity may be based on a more limited set of substances and the quantity value on a smaller area, the value for waste characteristics may be lower than for the resident population threat.
