by Walter Lyon,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: WRPMD'99: Preparing for the 21st Century


In Regions where water pollution control programs have succeeded in cleaning up our waters, spills from fixed installations and vessels, trucks and trains continue to represent a very significant source of pollution. Significant effort has been put forward in cleaning up spills after they occur but entirely too little effort has successfully addressed the subject of spill prevention. The ASCE Committee of spill prevention is beginning to address that subject and the paper will cover work which is going forward and issues which need to be addressed.
