Course Summary

The objective of this course is to describe the science of bioaccumulation in the aquatic environment as it relates to federal and state regulatory activities facing the petroleum industry. As chemicals that accumulate in organisms have come under increased scrutiny, both federal and state agencies have begun to implement additional regulations that limit chemical releases, and reduce exposure to humans and wildlife. These regulations affect the levels of chemicals that may be discharged to the environment, discharge reporting requirements, and responses to existing environmental contamination.
