Summary:  

This report used the latest available EPA National Air Toxics Assessment (NATA) from 2005 to explore the estimated risks of HAPs in the PRETA area. It is clear that HAPs pose a cancer risk within our area that is greater than the “one-in-a-million” level set as the lower-limit criterion for concern by the EPA.
