Oil-Spill Cleanup

Available From EPA

The U.S. Environmental Pro- tection Agency has released a comprehensive "Manual of Prac- tice for Protection and Cleanup of Shorelines" from oil spills. The two-volume manual was prepared by Woodward-Clyde Consultants (San Francisco).

The manual is designed as a decision-making guide to provide the on-scene coordinator and his staff with a systematic, easy-to- apply methodology that can be used: (1) to assess the threat of an oil spill or the extent of shore- line contamination, and (2) to choose the most appropriate and effective shoreline protection, cleanup and restoration tech- niques for specific shoreline types in a given oil-spill situation.

The manual is divided into two volumes: Volume I, Decision

Guide, gives instructions on how- to gather information on a spill, to assess the type and extent of a spill, and to decide which pro- tection and cleanup actions are appropriate; Volume II, Imple- mentation Guide, presents hack- ground information on oil charac- teristics, behavior and movement, shoreline processes and sensitiv- ity, and impacts associated with cleanup operations. The volume provides detailed instructions on how to implement various pro- tection and cleanup procedures, and presents criteria for termi- nating cleanup operations as well as a discussion on handling of oily wastes.

The manual, which can be ob- tained from the National Tech- nical Information Service (NTIS) in Springfield, Va., is entitled "Manual of Practice For Protec- tion and Cleanup of Shorelines,"

Volume I—Decision Guide, Vol- ume II — Implementation Guide, by ('. Foget. E. Schrier, M. Cram- er, and It. Castle of Woodward-
