The project team will collect and synthesize existing national and regional databases and inventories of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) contaminated sites to create a master list of known sites. This list, together with our existing inventory developed under the Toxic Sites Identification Program, will help guide and prioritize the selection of sites for Rapid Environmental Assessment.
