Human Health-Based Water Guidance Table

The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) develops health-based rules and guidance to evaluate potential human health risks from exposures to chemicals in groundwater. For more information, see: Health-Based Guidance for Water or contact the Health Risk Assessment Unit.

picture of an envelope to subscribeSubscribe to receive notification when chemical reviews are initiated and when guidance is issued for chemicals in groundwater.

Value Type Key: HRL = Health Risk Limits
HBV = Health-Based Values
RAA = Risk Assessment Advice

Numerical subscripts indicate the year the value was developed. MCL denotes a HRL based on a US EPA Maximum Contaminant Level.
Duration Key: Acute = one day exposure
Short-term = greater than one day up to 30 days
Subchronic = greater than 30 days up to 10% of a lifetime
Chronic = greater than 10% of a lifetime

The review history, i.e., date posted for review and date guidance was issued, for chemicals completing review in 2009 (HBV09 and RAA09) is available at Health-Based Guidance Review History
