PUBLIC HEALTH ASSESSMENT

KENNECOTT (NORTH ZONE)
MAGNA, SALT LAKE COUNTY, UTAH


CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS

Air, Soil, and, Surface Water Exposure Situations

Conclusions and recommendations specifically associated with the air, soil, and surface water exposures situations are stated on pages 10, 14, and 17, respectively.

Health Activities Recommendation Panel (HARP) Recommendations

The data and information developed in the public health assessment for the Kennecott North Zone site have been evaluated by the ATSDR Health Activities Recommendation Panel (HARP). The evaluations did not disclose any exposures that constitute a public health concern. Thus, there are no follow-up public health action recommendations. ATSDR will reevaluate the site for appropriate follow-up actions if additional information becomes available that show human exposures to site-related contaminants has occurred or is occurring at levels, durations, or frequencies that may be a public health concern.


PUBLIC HEALTH ACTIONS

ATSDR has concluded from its evaluations that no public health actions are needed.
