Environmental Protection Agency

  • The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has released a comprehensive "Manual of Practice 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-toapply methodology that can be used: (1) to assess the threat of an oil spill or the extent of shoreline contamination, and (2) to choose the most appropriate and e f f e c t i v e s h o r e l i n e protection, cleanup and r e s t o r a t i o n techniques for specific shoreline types in a given oil-spill situation.

    The manual is divided into two v o l u m e s : Volume I, Decision Guide, gives instructions on howto gather information on a spill, to assess the type and extent of a spill, and to decide which protection and cleanup actions are appropriate; Volume II, Implementation Guide, presents hackground information on oil characteristics, behavior and movement, shoreline processes and sensitivity, and impacts associated with cleanup operations. The volume provides detailed instructions on how to implement various protection and cleanup procedures, and presents criteria for terminating cleanup operations as well as a discussion on handling of oily wastes.

    The manual, which can be obtained from the National Technical Information Service (NTIS) in Springfield, Va., is entitled "Manual of Practice For Protection and Cleanup of Shorelines," Volume I—Decision Guide, Volume II — Implementation Guide, by ('.
