Development of a priority list of chemical mixtures occurring at 1188 hazardous waste sites, using the HazDat database.
Through GATHER, a site map can be generated that contains these demographic statistics for any hazardous waste site in the comprehensive HazDat database.
HazDat (Hazardous Substance Release/Health Effects Database) contains information on the release of hazardous substances from Superfund sites and emergency events, including information on site characteristics, contaminants found, impact on population, community health concerns, ATSDR recommendations, environmental fate of hazardous substances, exposure routes, and physical hazards at the site/event.
ATSDR has developed a database, HazDat (ATSDR, 1993), in which all the information available on NPL sites, ATSDR public health assessment sites, emergency response sites, sites for which a health consultation has been conducted, and federal facilities sites is stored.
