Swan Hills Waste treatment center: Long-term follow-up health assessment program 1997-2002

Description

The Swan Hills Treatment Centre is a facility for the safe disposal of special wastes located approximately 12 kilometers northeast of the town of Swan Hills. A furnace malfunction in October 1996 caused the release of a portion of process gases containing toxic substances into the ambient air. A 1997 Alberta Health human health risk assessment study led to the establishment of several food consumption advisories and the establishment of a long-term environmental monitoring and human exposure assessment program. This report discusses the results from several ongoing studies that have been conducted to date.
