Published by Viola Davis
In April 2005, the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) received a petition from a citizen action group requesting a health consultation to investigate the potential for human exposure to groundwater contaminants originating from the Scales Road, Advanced Disposal, and BFI Waste Systems (BFI) construction and demolition landfills in South Dekalb County. Working in partnership with ATSDR, the Georgia Division of Public Health (GDPH) completed this health consultation.

Health Consultation: A Note of Explanation
An ATSDR health consultation is a verbal or written response from ATSDR to a specificrequest for information about health risks related to a specific site, a chemical release, or thepresence of hazardous material. In order to prevent or mitigate exposures, a consultation maylead to specific actions, such as restricting use of or replacing water supplies; intensifyingenvironmental sampling; restricting site access; or removing the contaminated material.In addition, consultations may recommend additional public health actions, such as conductinghealth surveillance activities to evaluate exposure or trends in adverse health outcomes;conducting biological indicators of exposure studies to assess exposure; and providing healtheducation for health care providers and community members. This concludes the healthconsultation process for this site, unless additional information is obtained by ATSDR which,in the Agency’s opinion, indicates a need to revise or append the conclusions previouslyissued.You May Contact ATSDR TOLL FREE at1-800-CDC-INFOorVisit our Home Page at: http://www.atsdr.cdc.gov
