ABSTRACT

Environmental and public health concern for the emission of air pollutants from burn-up process in waste incineration plants located in the vicinity of living environment was increased during the past decade. The purpose of this study was to suggest of the simple and rapid method of priority setting model for the decision of full-scale public health assessment. This method was consists of total 5-step. Step 1 was “secure the satellite map” and we can use the satellite map which serves from the website such as NAVER Co. Step 2 was “drawing mesh on the map” for catch the point of occupation of environmental sensitivity facilities, and step 3 was “identification and sorting of the facilities”, Step 4 was “setting of weight” using the “weighted linear combination (WLC) method”. Finally, all facility was sorted by score. As a result, we can set a priority of 145 facilities based on 177 facilities which managed in local government. Facilities in Seoul metropolitan area was high rank in priority list. On the other side, Facilities located at the country or rural area was low rank because of low occupation of the house and the environmental sensitivity facilities such as kindergarten, elementary school, and hospital. In this study, we suggested simple and rapid method that using for screening procedure of public health assessment.
