INFLUENCE OF ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS ON SELECTED AMELIORATION TECHNIQUES FOR DISCHARGES OF HAZARDOUS CHEMICALS
The influence of environmental conditions on selected potential amelioration techniques for discharges of selected hazardous chemicals was determined. Historical discharge data was examined to establish categories of spill sizes. The range of environmental conditions (air and water) encountered in discharge situations was determined. Model case studies were performed to assess the magnitude of dispersion in air and/or water. Evaluations were then made to determine if and to what extent the selected amelioration techniques would be influenced by the pertinent environmental conditions. Favorable environmental conditions were also summarized.
