Title: Fact sheet for the RBCA tool kit for chemical releases
Author: Environment Agency
Document Type: Monograph
Abstract:
The RBCA Tool Kit for Chemical Releases consists of a series of linked workbooks programmed in Microsoft Excel version 7.0 or 97. This tool can be used to calculate risk levels (i.e. 1 in a million) and/or "cleanup standards" for soil and groundwater (e.g. 10 mg/kg for soil or 10 mg/l for groundwater). These vaiues are calculated based on information provided by the user. The RBCA Tool Kit is designed to be protective of human health and the environment. The Tool Kit was specifically designed to complete all calculations required for Tier 1 and Tier 2 of the RBCA planning process, as defined in the ASTM (American Society for Testing and Material) E2081-00. Standard Guide for Risk-Based Corrective Action [2]. This includes the calculation of exposure concentrations and average daily intake of contaminants by humans. The Tool Kit includes analytical fate and transport models for air, groundwater and soil exposure pathways. The user can enter suitable site-specific soil, groundwater and air parameters.
