The report is an interim environmental assessment of the disposal of suspended liquid silvex herbicide formulations. Several alternative means of disposal, including no action, were evaluated. The evaluation led to the selection of at-sea incineration aboard a chemical waste incineration ship as the preferred alternative disposal action. The other alternatives were rejected because of undeveloped technology, adverse environmental impacts, high cost, or excessive disposal duration. The analyses presented in the report show that potential environmental impacts of the preferred and principal alternative disposal actions will be insignificant and transient. Impacts of potential accidents and malfunctions were considered, and means of mitigation are discussed.
