Abstract

Many regulations and programs have been created to ensure that hazardous waste is handled in a manner that protects human and environmental health including the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). In an effort to analyze the current distribution of hazardous waste in Warren County and how that distribution could impact the county’s water quality, a RCRA database was created. This information was combined with water wells data, karst water table contours, and soil contamination risks for Warren County. This database will allow better targeting water quality monitoring, especially in cases of spills.
