Abstract
An Operations Planning Manual was prepared for use by Federal Water Pollution Control Administration personnel involved in oil-spill cleanup operations. The surface conditions and topography of a beach contaminated with oil and the manner in which the oil has been deposited onto the beach will dictate the choice of equipment to be utilized and the operating procedures to be followed. The procedures tested utilize motorized graders, motorized elevating scrapers, front end loaders, and conveyor-screening systems. A motorized grader and motorized elevating scraper working in combination provide the most rapid means of beach restoration; and in addition, their use results in the removal of the smallest amount of uncontaminated beach material.
