National Air Toxics Assessment Website
In June 2009, EPA released the results of its 2002 national-scale assessment of air toxics emissions. The purpose of the national-scale assessment is to identify and prioritize air toxics, emission source types and locations which are of greatest potential concern in terms of contributing to population risk. The findings show that much of the U.S. population is exposed to levels of air toxics which result in higher health risks than EPA considers acceptable. The findings of the NATA can be found at the EPA's National Air Toxics Assessment web page.
