The risk assessment process involves identifying and characterizing hazards, determining dose-response relationships, and assessing possible exposures to toxins in order to inform risk management. The goal of this project was to complete the steps of a risk assessment and develop a perspective on risk management. Data collected from publicly available databases, scholarly articles, and targeted sources were used to perform a risk assessment for PCB exposure from MVP in Southwest Virginia. Social, economic, political, and/or legal perspectives were considered when determining the best risk management approaches.
