Abstract:
FACT SHEET (3/13/98) issued simultaneously with the EPA's Federal Register notice that the legal authority provided under the Clean Air Act (section 112) is adequate to protect public health and the environment from harmful effects associated with deposition of toxic air pollutants into what is known as the "Great Waters." The Great Waters include: the Great Lakes, Lake Champlain, Chesapeake Bay, and many U.S. coastal estuaries. Air toxics, also known as hazardous air pollutants, are known or suspected to cause cancer and/or other serious health effects, such as birth defects or reproductive effects.
