Here are some of the risks associated with this dangerous substance:
Dietary Risk (Food)
- Acute and chronic dietary risk from food is not of concern.
Dietary Risk (Drinking Water)
- Risk estimates are based on a refined assessment that considers monitoring data.
- Assessments included atrazine and the chlorinated metabolites are not expected to be a significant contributor to drinking water risk.
- Limited sampling was done for the chlorinated metabolites.
Community Water Systems (CWS) i.e. Surface Water
- Acute (one-day) exposures do not exceed levels of concern. The maximum estimated one-day concentration of 89 ppb is less than the DWLOC of 298 ppb.
- 29 CWS assessed with either screening level or probabilistic methods had 91-day average (intermediate-term) exposures to chlorotriazines that exceeded levels of concern for infants (DWLOC of 12.5 ppb) at the 99.9th percentile.
- CWS of concern are located in Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana, Indiana, Kentucky, Missouri, and Ohio.
- Acute (one-day) exposures
do not exceed levels of concern. The maximum measured value of 18 ppb is less
than the DWLOC of 298 ppb.
- Acute exposures do not exceed levels of concern. The maximum measured value of ~11 ppb is less than the DWLOC of 298 ppb.
- Chronic exposures do not exceed the DWLOC of 12.5 ppb.
- CWS using groundwater are not impacted as heavily by atrazine use as CWS using surface water.
