DEVELOPMENT OF A KIT FOR DETECTION OF HAZARDOUS MATERIAL SPILLS INTO WATERWAYS
Edgewood Arsenal has developed a kit to detect hazardous material spills into waterways. The purpose of the program was to develop a man-portable field kit able to detect (not necessarily identify) as many contaminants in water in as low a concentration as possible. A field kit was designed containing a spectrophotometer, conductivity meter, pH meter and a variety of accessory equipment and reagents. Prototype kits were fabricated and delivered to the Environmental Protection Agency along with engineering drawings, parts lists and manuals.
