These tools will support more comprehensive characterisation of the flow pathways, give greater detail on the pressures, and therefore the significant pressures impacting on the water environment, and will improve the wfd risk characterisation process.
The air quality modeling study assessed ground level pollutant concentrations and the risk characterisation study assessed cancer risk and hazards to resident adults and children from direct inhalation.
We reviewed it but decided not to include it in our risk characterisation. In our opinion, this study presented several weaknesses.

A series of chapters discusses each step, starting with hazard identification and characterisation before going on to consider exposure assessment and risk characterisation. Given its importance, risk communication is also covered.
The EPA is planning on using a three tier risk characterisation approach so that the level of assessment effort is commensurate with the level of risk posed.
