Probabilistic Approach for Cancer Risk Assessment
Carcinogenic chemicals have entered ground water systems from surface spills and leaching from subsurface disposal sites. Of particular interest in this study was the contaminant tetrachioroethylene...

A Framework for Sanitation and Health Risk Assessment
This paper summarizes some historical, cultural, and operational responses to risk. Zero risk and zero pollution ideas developed as arguably escapist reactions to stresses of economic,...

Preparation of Notification Models Using Continuous Modeling Techniques
Public health departments in many states now require that operators of collection systems notify them of discharges from combined sewer systems soon after these events occur. This allows...

Experiences in Cleaning Up the Influence of Oil Spill on the Water Bodies
Experiences in cleaning up the influence of oil spill on water bodies of Komi Republic (European part of Russian North) and Dagestan Republic (North Caucasus) was generalized. In both...

Bacterial and Chemical Pollution of Littoral Waters of Lake Ohrid at Pogradec—Town Area
The Pogradec shore waters exceed these bacteriological standards and provide risks to the public health. The levels of the chemical indexes clearly show the influence of organic pollution....

Coping with EPA's Storm Water Permit for Hazardous Waste Facilities, Industrial Landfills, Wastewater Treatment Plants, and Recyclers
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has released NPDES storm water monitoring data from group applicants. This paper will analyze that data to determine which pollutants are present...

The Standley Lake Protection Project
Until recently, there has been no physical separation between potentially contaminated runoff from the former Rocky Flats Nuclear Weapons Plant and Standley Lake, the nearby water supply...

Assessing Water Quality Impacts of Stormwater Runoff
Current water quality monitoring of non-point source runoff typically involves periodically measuring a laundry list of chemicals in the runoff waters. This approach, while satisfying...

Influence of Flooding Events on Suspended Matter Quality of the Meuse River (The Netherlands)
Flooding events of the Rhine and Meuse Rivers have struck The Netherlands in 1993 and 1995. In the Meuse River basin, the river forelands have been widely used for housing and agro-industrial...

Effective Management and Control of Urban Flood Disasters in West Africa
This paper begins by examining the characteristics of the impacts of flood disasters in the urban centers of West Africa. The paper then examines some significant examples of individual...

Wetland Designs for Environmental Protection—Application in India
In many developing countries raw sewage are discharged into rivers and lakes. This practice causes severe degradation of regional water quality, and often results in serious public health...

A Three Dimensional Oil Spill Model
This paper reports the development and testing of a comprehensive three-dimensional oil spill model. At present time, the model components include advection and turbulent diffusion, vertical...
