The document presents a brief description of the operation and design of surface impoundments and background information on the development of the Surface Impoundments Modeling System (SIMS). The SIMS was developed with funding from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Control Technology Center (CTC) and with project management provided by EPA's Technical Support Division of the Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards. SIMS is based on emission models developed by the Emission Standards Division (ESD) during the evaluation of surface impoundments located in treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDF). The purpose of the latest update to SIMS is to add models for diffused air systems and several collection system devices, and to expand the compound database from 40 to 150. The technical document discusses these emission models, surface impoundment design and operation, default parameter development, and the emission estimation procedure. Another document entitled, SIMS Version 2.0 User's Manual, PB91-156711, presents a complete reference for all features and commands in the SIMS PC program.
