    This public health assessment (PHA) evaluates past, current and potential future exposures to contaminants and other conditions related to the Peninsula Boulevard Groundwater plume. This PHA fulfills the congressional mandate that requires public health assessment activities for each site proposed to the National Priorities List (NPL). The New York State Department of Health (NYS DOH), under a cooperative agreement with the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), conducted this evaluation. More specifically, ATSDR, a federal agency within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and NYS DOH determine whether adverse health effects are possible and recommend actions to reduce or prevent possible adverse health effects. The Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA), as amended by the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA) of 1986, authorizes ATSDR to conduct public health assessments at inactive hazardous waste disposal sites proposed for the NPL. The Peninsula Boulevard groundwater plume was proposed for the NPL in March of 2004 and listed on the NPL in July of 2004.

    Prepared by New York State Department of Health, Center for Environmental Health under a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, Division of Health Assessment and Consultation Superfund and Program Assessment Branch.
