In its Watchdog Watch role, CRE has sent supplemental comments to EPA which warn that the NRDC comments on its draft risk assessment for land-applied biosolids cannot be used because, under both the OMB and EPA Data Quality guidance, they contain substantial inaccuracies, omissions, and biases, and lack reproducibility. The NRDC comments argued that the draft risk assessment under-estimated risks from dioxin and related compounds.
