Title: Health assessment for North Cavalcade Street National Priorities List (NPL) Site, Houston, Texas, Region 6. CERCLIS No. TXD980873343. Final report

Abstract

The North Cavalcade Street site is a National Priorities List site located in Houston, Texas. The site is the former location of a wood-treatment facility. There are approximately 4500 residents within a one-mile radius of the site. The site is contaminated with various chemicals including polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and to some extent lead and arsenic. Exposures of public health concern to site contaminants may occur via dermal contact with and indirect ingestion of soil. There is a potential for ingestion exposure to contaminated ground water if remedial measures do not remove the contamination or are unsuccessful at controlling the migration of contamination. The public health threat posed by potential ingestion of contaminated food chain entities cannot be evaluated with the information provided.
