Ohio Human Health Criteria are found in the Lake Erie Basin Aquatic Life and Human Health Tier I Criteria
Tier II Values and Screening Values contained and developed persuant to Chapters 3745-1 and 3745-2 of the Ohio Administrative Code. Exposure is based upon ingestion of fish and incidental ingestion of surface water during recreational activities.
* Other chemicals were detected in the surface water. This table focuses on the chemicals of most concern at the site.
** Complete list of sampling results can be found at EPA's Integrated Assessment Report, 2000.
*** Subsequent sampling shows contaminant levels in the creek have been reduced to below levels of concern
