Welcome to the Toxics Steering Group (TSG) Homepage

The purpose of the Toxics Steering Group (TSG) is to provide a forum for discussion of human health risk assessment issues related to exposure to chemical contaminants in environmental media. The TSG will facilitate development of consensus recommendations based on sound science to relevant state department managers and will foster consistency of risk assessment applications within the DEQ and between state agencies, while minimizing duplication of effort on risk assessment issues.
