Increased use of coal in the generation of electricity has become national policy.^With the anticipated accelerated use of coal as an energy source, a concomitant increase can be expected in the potential for impacts to fish and wildlife resources.^The goal of this manual is to provide quantitative guidelines, where possible for evaluating the potential extent of habitat disturbance from waste constituent dispersal.^Criteria are also provided for evaluating the potential for impact from trace elements in the waste.^This manual is limited to combustion and emission-abatement waste-handling systems and impacts of wastes on fish and wildlife resources.
