A manual for control of hazardous material spills using improvised treatment systems was developed under this contract. Spill control techniques have been emphasized, although a brief overview of spill prevention methodology is included. The main body of the manual has been subdivided into eight chapters. The following topics are covered: (1) notification, (2) an inventory of information sources, (3) identification and assessment of human danger potentials, (4) determination of the best handling method, including a thought guide question approach to specific spill incidents and suggested treatment schemes for 303 hazardous chemicals, (5) safety considerations and a limiting factor process design, (6) construction and operation of five improvised treatment processes (filtration, carbon adsorption, ion exchange, gravity separation and chemical reaction), (7) process components and treatment chemicals and (8) standard sampling and recordkeeping procedures. It is stressed that previous familiarization with the contents is necessary for its effective use and that the improvised systems should be used only when other equipment is unavailable. Suggested treatment schemes and procedures have not been field tested, so extreme care must be taken to follow all safety precautions.
