HUMAN HEALTH RISK
This section presents
the requirements, methodology, criteria and protocols for the measurement of
human health risk impacts for this Project.
The human health risk
assessment will focus on assessing the potential health impacts due to radon
emissions associated with pulverized fly ash (PFA) arising from the
construction and operation of STF.
Monitoring of Radon
As recommended in the
EIA Report, the radon concentration shall be measured prior to the occupation
of the STF buildings by professional persons in accordance with EPD ProPECC
Note PN 1/99 “Control of Radon Concentration in New Buildings” to ensure that
the radon concentration complies with the guideline value in EPD ProPECC Note
Monitoring during Operation Phase
In the first year of
operation of the STF, the radon concentration shall be measured quarterly by
professional persons to confirm that the radon level complies with the
guideline value stipulated in EPD ProPECC Note PN 1/99.
Measurement of Radon
locations, measurement protocol, measurement criteria, report and documentation
described in Appendix 2 of “Protocol of Radon Measurement for Non-residential
Building” of EPD ProPECC Note PN 1/99 “Control of Radon Concentration in New
Buildings” shall be followed. The protocol is enclosed in Appendix 3.1 of this EM&A
Manual for information.
