Baltimore Community Environmental Partnership Air Committee Technical Report

The Baltimore Case Study report describes the work and results of the 3-year air screening pilot project organized by a partnership in Baltimore, Maryland. It illustrates the development and implementation of a new methodology for evaluating air quality impacts of toxic air pollutant emissions. The risk screening methodology used the partnership approach to evaluate potential human health risks from more than 175 chemicals emitted to the air by more than 125 facilities in and around the partnership neighborhoods. The case study presents the process used as well as the results and lessons learned from the experience. The risk screening methodology was translated into the Community Air Screening Manual How-To for community use.
