Distinctive Features of the Threat
The Maximum score for the environmental threat is 60 rather than 100.
Bioaccumulation comes into play for this threat as well as for the human food chain threat.
- The Maximum value for waste characteristics is 1,000 rather than 100. This means that high threat scores can be obtained with relatively few target points.
- Aqueous samples are required for Level 1 concentrations. Frequently, however, Level II can "max out" the threat score at 60.
- A variety of sensitive environments plus wetlands are the targets. There is no assessment of "nearest environment" in this threat.
