On June 30, 2008, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency solicited scientific comment from the public on EPAís Draft Technical Support Document, Volume 3: Development of Site-Specific Bioaccumulation Factors, Methodology for Deriving Ambient Water Quality Criteria for the Protection of Human Health.

This draft technical document contains technical details on how EPA develops national bioaccumulation factors for use in deriving national recommended ambient water quality criteria for protecting human health. It also contains technical details on how States and Tribes may develop site-specific bioaccumulation factors for use in deriving site-specific ambient water quality criteria for protecting human health. This documentís goal is to help determine the most accurate estimates of bioaccumulation feasible for each site.

Public comment on the draft must be received by EPA on or before August 14, 2008.
