Community Relations on Hazardous Waste Projects: A Successful Experience
Promoting good community relations is an integral part of hazardous waste projects. Before field investigations are conducted at a hazardous waste site, neighboring communities should...

Analysis of Alluvial Fan Flooding
Alluvial fans are estimated to cover approximately one third of the land area in the southwestern United States. Because of their relatively gentle slopes and well draining characteristics,...

A New Methodology for Modelling Water Pipe Breaks
A new methodology for modelling breaks in large diameter cast-iron water pipes is proposed. The need to consider two separate stages of deterioration (early stages with fewer breaks and...

Water System Reliability‚ÄĒBalance of Cost and Risk
Reliability of water distribution systems to perform adequately during stress situations is dependent both on operation/maintenance preparedness as well as the limitations of the physical...

Hazardous Waste Investigations in Residential Areas

Perspectives of a Citizen's Action Group Impacted by Hazardous Waste Contamination

Management Lessons from Engineering Failures
Engineering failures are not always catastrophic. More are due to improper management of contracts rather than actual physical failures. Some result in loss of life; most result in disputes...

Spatial Analysis of Ice Charts
Spatial approaches to ice environment modeling can not only lead to better local hazard predictions but also produce regionalizations that are useful for construction, navigation, and...

Hazardous Waste: Closing the Insurance Gap
Insurers are withdrawing from the hazardous waste field because of large claims and increased risks. Therefore, cleanup contractors are being forced to look for alternative ways to protect...

Automated Data Monitoring for Disaster Prevention
A system is now available from International Hydrological Services for use on micro-computers that will provide real-time environmental monitoring, analysis, forecasting and control. This...

Modeling of Microbially Active Soil Columns
A soil-based microbial treatment process for on-site treatement of hazardous industrial wastewaters has been developed. The indigenous microflora of the soil are supplemented by the addition...

Apportionment of Costs for Multi-Party Cleanups
A rational model was developed for allocating remedial response costs among potentially responsible parties involved in clean up of abandoned waste sites. The model takes into consideration...

True Cost Comparison of Landfilling and Incineration of Hazardous Wastes
An analysis of the 'true' costs of a series of discrete model situations representing hazardous waste management by landfilling and incineration was conducted....

Remediation of Contaminated Groundwater by Intermittent Biological Treatment

Field Scale Solidification/Stabilization of Hazardous Wastes
The selection of appropriate remedial action measures only takes place after a full evaluation of all feasible alternatives. An alternative to off site disposal is solidification/stabilization...

Detection of Leakage Through Subsurface Barriers Using Guided Acoustic Waves
The primary method for preventing hazardous liquid and leachates from entering the groundwater is the use of a physical barrier. These barriers are susceptible to a number of mechanisms...

Land Treatment of Refinery Wastes
The authors discuss: waste characteristics; land treatment; and cost comparison with incineration....

Prior Planning for Post-Hurricane Reconstruction
Planning for hurricane emergencies has focused upon the period immediately before and after the storm's arrival, emphasizing evacuation and disaster relief. Mitigation of...

Constraints on the Use of Development Management to Reduce Coastal Storm Hazards
This paper has presented some important information about perceived constraints to the enactment and effective implementation of development management measures to reduce coastal storm...

Density Transfer: The Santa Monicas Contribution
This paper addresses some aspects of designing and implementing density transfer programs, as illustrated by the Transfer of Development Credit (TDC) program which the California Coastal...
