Swan Hills Waste treatment center: Long-term follow-up health assessment program: Wild game and fish monitoring, 1997-2012

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, reviews the food consumption advisories, and makes recommendations for continued monitoring and some changes to the wild game consumption advisories. It was recommended that the current fish consumption advisories remain the same.
