Title: Handbook of environmental laws and regulations

At last - an index to the regulations. That may not be the way Dr. Lee planned it, but that may be the most valuable purpose served by this new publication from HMCRI. And what a valuable thing it is. The book is a tireless compilation of virtually all of the terms in the regulations of Title 40 (environment) of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), from Part 1 through Part 1517. In addition, some definitions are extracted from other CFR Titles (such as 10 and 29) that contain environment-related material. The terms appear in alphabetical order, and complete descriptive definitions are provided for each. Each entry also contains the exact CFR reference number; thus a complete source for the term is available. By using the CFR citations during a search for information, the reader is hand-held through the formidabile multi-volume Title 40. More important, by using the definitional citations the reader is indirectly led to the regulatory requirements for virtually any subject. The book is therefore a guidebook through the regulations: a true index. The major subjects covered in Dr. Lee's book include: (1) statutory definitions from all major environmental laws, including the Clean Air Act, the Clean Watermore » Act, the Safe Drinking Water Act, RCRA, and CERCLA; (2) regulatory definitions from the entire Title 40 CFR, Parts 1 through 1517; (3) radiation-related environmental definitions from 10 CFR; (4) health-related environmental definitions from 29 CFR; (5) common environmental engineering definitions from EPA publications; (6) chemicals regulated by various environmental laws and regulations; (7) environmental acronyms; and (8) references to sources for the information presented.« less
