Abstract:
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is issuing a report to Congress which describes the methods and general framework that EPA will use to assess the public health and environmental risk which may remain after implementation of certain air toxics regulations required under the Clean Air. This remaining risk is referred to as "residual risk." Air toxics, also known as hazardous air pollutants, are those pollutants known or suspected to cause cancer or other adverse health effects to humans or adverse environmental effects."
