Final Development Support Documents (DSDs)

DSDs detail how Effects Screening Levels (ESLs), inhalation Reference Values (ReVs), and inhalation Unit Risk Factors (URFs) were derived for specific chemicals. This page also links to Fact Sheets which summarize information used by the TCEQ Toxicology Division to develop those values.
