The magnitude of potentially hazardous chemicals now being transported through the country poses a serious threat to the water ecosystem. Unless spills can be controlled at their source, movement into the water system may be inevitable. Such control dictates the availability of systems capable of forming dikes or flow diverting barriers either as a portable system carried on the vehicle or a mobile unit rapidly deployable to the site. In this regard, a program was instituted to investigate the applicability of foamed materials for forming such dikes and barriers. In each case, a field tested unit was demonstrated or shown to be feasible. (Modified author abstract)
