Historical Environmental Monitoring Data Introduction One of the most important aspects of the Rocky Flats Historical Public Exposures Studies was an evaluation of information gathered in the past about contaminants in the air, vegetation, water, sediment and soil in areas surrounding the Rocky Flats site. Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE). The purpose of the Historical Public Exposures Studies on Rocky Flats is to evaluate the doses and potential health impacts to nearby residents who may have been exposed to past contaminant releases. This health study focused on members of the public living offsite.

August Phase II of the Historical Public Exposures Study on the Rocky Flats Site. This work was supported by the CDPHE and overseen by a Panel of technical and non-technical individuals representing scientists and community members. By the study’s end, RAC had produced 20 technical reports documenting.

Risks to the public from historical releases of radionuclides and chemicals at the Rocky Flats Environmental Technology Site JOHN E. TILL,a ARTHUR S. . Rocky Flats Environmental Technology Site (RFETS) Final Release. Foreword. The Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, ATSDR, was established by Congress in under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act, also known as the. Superfund. law. This law set up a fund to identify and. The Rocky Flats Historical Public Exposure Studies involved nine years of research. The Studies had three main objectives: (1) create a public record of plant operations and accidents that contributed to contaminant releases from the Rocky Flats Plant between and ; (2) assess public exposures to contaminants and potential risks from past releases; and, (3) determine the need for future studies. 91 Previous investigators (Haugen and Fontino ) used this data set in a performance evaluation of 92 the TRAC (Hodgin ) and ISC2 models. The electronic copy of this data set was obtained from 93 Haugen and Fontino () for use in the model performance evaluation for the Historical Public 94 Exposures Studies at Rocky Flats (Rood ).
