Abstract

The Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) has been asked by several citizens of Clinton, Iowa to evaluate potential health effects from exposure to benzene from an above ground tank located near a residential area. The above ground tank is managed by Equistar Chemicals, LP (Equistar) and is use to store pyrolysis gasoline prior to off-loading onto barges. The IDPH in cooperation with the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) prepared this health consultation to review the air quality monitoring provided by Equistar and provide an evaluation of the health effects from exposure to benzene at the levels detected in ambient air near the tank. The information in this health consultation was current at the time of writing. Data that emerges later could alter this document’s conclusions and recommendations.
