The three preceding volumes of this report describe in detail the development of four alternative technical approaches for the designation of harmful quantities and rates of penalty for non-removable hazardous materials. All approaches were designed to comply with the law, but each offers unique features which vary the degree of resolution and ease of administration achieved. Each alternative is likely to have a different level of impact on potential spillers as well as the environment. It is these differences that must be characterized and considered as part of the final selection of an optimal approach. Volume 4 has been written to address these and other issues.
