Critical Evaluation of Risk Assessment: A Look from the Inside Out

Secondary Containment Design Practices
Over the past several decades the design approach to containment of spills has not been consistent resulting in release of hazardous substances into the environment. The increased discovery...

Comparative Simulation of Oil Weathering
Oil spills in the aquatic environment, an unfortunately more and more common occurrence, cause contamination effects which negatively impact water quality, health of ecosystems and water...

Rehabilitating Arctic Tundra in Alaska
During the past 25 years, there has been significant progress in tundra rehabilitation. Initially, agronomic practices requiring large quantities of grass seed and fertilizer were believed...

Oil Spills: Prevention, Prediction, and Preparation
This paper summarizes some of the state and federal rules, assessment techniques, and response procedures being used by marine terminals along coastal California to prevent, predict, and...

Risk Analysis of Drinking Water Treatment and Supply Facilities Handling Highly Hazardous Chemicals
Due to increasing public concern of risks from handling highly hazardous chemicals at various facilities, a number of state regulatory agencies, including the State of California, have...

Geochemical Modeling of Lead in Vadose Zone
In recent years, researchers have used multicomponent reactive transport models to study the mobility of potentially toxic heavy metals in the subsurface. In this study, such a mathematical...

Health Risk Sensitivity to Variable and Uncertain Parameters
A methodology is presented that attempts to quantify the effects of individual variability and parameter uncertainty in a groundwater-driven health risk assessment. Two modeling approaches...

Regional Groundwater Management with Health Risk Assessment
A regional groundwater system may have several areas which are contaminated with organic chemicals. In general, the objective of groundwater management is to supply the demand for water...

A Cost-Effective approach to In Situ Remediation of Soil and Groundwater at a Diesel Fuel Spill Site
A bioventing and groundwater treatment system designed to enhance the natural biodegradation of diesel fuel residuals in soil and prevent further groundwater degradation was installed...

Management of Contaminated Groundwater Using Natural Attenuation
Many state and federal regulations governing remediation of contaminated groundwater give preference to the implementation of remedial alternatives which are capable of providing protection...

Beneficial Aspects of Flood and Rain in Countries Where the Drinking Water is Naturally Contaminated with Fluoride Where Fluorosis is a Major Public Health Problem
Floods, although considered destructive, have beneficial aspects too. This report is about one such instance where flood waters are considered extremely beneficial in countries where drinking...

Combined Flood Hazard Mitigation Techniques for Comprehensive Planning— The Saugus River Coastal Flood Risk Reduction Plan
The development of an alternative Coastal Flood Risic Reduction Plan for the Saugus River was initiated by the Executive Office of Environinental Affairs (EOEA) of Massachusetts in April...
