Abstract
With the rapid development of agriculture and industry in Taihu Lake Basin, Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) have become the focus of research. The paper performed ecological and health risk assessment for PAHs in Taihu Lake Basin. Based on the measured data from the centralized source of drinking water in Taihu Lake Basin and historical data from other regions, the paper analyzed the characteristics. The ecological risks of PAHs were assessed according to the environmental quality standards in sediment of USEPA, and the health risks were assessed with the exposure assessment method of USEPA. The results showed that PAHs in Taihu Lake Basin were in low ecological and health risk. The water quality from Taihu centralized drinking water source was good and in low ecological and health risk.
