The volume summarizes data obtained and analyses conducted during a 2-year pollution prevention study of Amoco Oil Company's Yorktown, Virginia Refinery. The study was jointly sponsored as a cooperative effort of Amoco Corporation and the United States Environmental Protection Agency. A multi-media sampling program was used to identify potential pollution sources within the Refinery. Specific engineering projects were proposed to deal with major sources, and the simulated results of implementation were assessed in terms of environmental impact, cost, risk reduction for people living near the facility, and liability.
