Recent development on the hazards posed by 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin in soil : implications for setting risk-based cleanup levels at residential and industrial sites.
Since the publication of the Times Beach risk assessment in 1984, which suggested that residential soils were of concern when the level of 1,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) was in excess of 1 ppb, there has been continued interest in this topic.
Studies conducted within the past 5 yr on the environmental and toxicological behavior of TCDD, as well as refinement of parameters regarding human exposure, indicate that previous assessments of the risk to humans posed by TCDD-contaminated soil were overestimated.
