Contaminants and Associated Biological Effects in Coastal and Estuarine Ecosystems Near Certain Urban Areas

The Role of Local Government in the American Trader Oil Spill, 1990

An Integrated Study of Air Toxics Emissions from an MSW Landfill
An integrated approach was used for a study of air toxics emissions at a municipal solid waste (MSW) landfill (LF) consisting of field sampling, emission estimation, atmospheric dispersion...

Toxicity Bioassay Using Nitrifying Bacteria
Monitoring water quality by the use of toxicity bioassay was studied with respect to the interrelationship between nitrifying activities, ammonium and inorganic compounds. Differential...

Toxicity Bio-Assays, 5-Day BOD and Deja Vu
This article revisits some of the basic definitions of toxicity bioassays and 5-day BOD and questions the the precision of these measuements and the long duration of these tests....

Screening Level Modeling in Support of an Estuarine Toxics Management Program
Mathematical models will be used in the future to determine maximum allowable pollutant loading rates for several toxics to the South San Francisco Bay Estuary. This project consisted...

Destruction of VOC's By Thermal Oxidation
The Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 call for the regulation of 189 air toxics and requires control standard benchmarks of Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT). These emissions...

Air Stripping of Refinery Effluent for TC Compliance
In order to manage the risk that the water effluent may at times exceed the limits of the USEPA final Toxicity Characteristics (TC) rule which came into effect on September 25, 1990, a...

Minimization of Hazardous Waste Generation: Preliminary Investigation of Waste Management Properties of a Solvent Substitute for TCE
The objective of this study was to conduct a preliminary evaluation of waste management properties of a terpene-based solvent substitute. Waste management properties which were evaluated...

Case Studies of POTW Air Toxic Emission Tests and a Proposed Emission Control Strategy
Air toxic emissions and associated human health risk at wastewater treatment plants can be reduced with a phased implementation strategy. An evaluation of major conventional secondary...

Epidemiology and Toxicology in Engineering Education
The Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology, Inc. (ABET) first articulated an interest in providing undergraduate engineers with background in occupational health and safety...

In Situ Remediation of Hazardous Wastes
Numerous releases of hazardous substances have occurred at uncontrolled sites all around the United States. These sites pose toxic threats to public health and our environment, and potential...

Influence of Soil and Sediment pH and Redox Conditions on Degradation of Toxic Organics
The presence of toxic organics in soil and sediments has raised concern over persistence and bioaccumulation. In the absence of oxygen, microbial degradation of toxic organics proceeds...
