Protection, exposure, and recovery for chemical field engineering
by Rivera, Michael Kirn, M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2015, 72; 1604869
Abstract (Summary)

This project is a compilation of information from public sources as well as from private unclassified military sources combined with first hand field engineering knowledge. This report should be read prior to any and all who will be entering any Superfund site and/or Formally Used Defense Site (FUDS). Reading of this report should be done in order to make the individual aware of the risk they are under taking by entering a Superfund and FUD site. Primarily the health risks that include but are not limited the development of cancer and death. It should be noted that this report does not cover all contaminates, but focuses on the most detrimental to human health and widely found hazards. Primarily the effects Radiation, Lead, Cyanobacteria Blooms, and MTBE have on the human body and how these chemicals came to be in the environment. Ways to prevent exposure and treatment for when exposure occurs.
