Recommendations Follow Conclusions
Many recommendations about actions that are needed at a site logically follow conclusions. For instance, if people are coming in contact with chemicals at a site in a way that could harm their health, a recommendation is needed to stop contact with the chemicals. If data are missing to evaluate whether chemicals are present at levels that could cause harm, then a recommendation should be made to gather that information.
Review the following list of conclusions and corresponding recommendations.
If the conclusion is that people are using well water that contains chemicals
at levels that could harm them, the health assessor would recommend closing
the wells and providing clean water to people whose well water contains
chemicals at harmful levels.
If the conclusion is made that high levels of hazardous chemicals have
been found in surface soil at the site, but no samples have been collected
from the neighboring yard where children play, the health assessor would
make a recommendation to sample surface soil in the neighboring yard.
