A retrospective follow-up study was conducted in 1990 to assess the short-term health impacts of an industrial waste landfill.
The site, located since 1979 in a French town of 6 000 inhabitants (about 100 m from the nearest houses) released volatile organic compounds (VOCs) into the air and provoked intense health concern in the community.
The landfill was subsequently closed in 1988.
Subjects were 694 inhabitants residing in three different parts of town.
Individual exposure was estimated, using a dispersion model of volatile air pollutants and accommodated the daily activity patterns of each individual within the area under investigation.
