CI/CHLOR PAMPHLET 74
Guidance on Estimating the Area Affected by a Chlorine Release
|Publication Date:||1 June 2015|
The intent of this pamphlet is to provide a simplified document to assist chlorine producers/users, local emergency planning committees, fire departments, and municipalities in estimating the area affected by a chlorine release for emergency planning and hazard assessment purposes, and to provide a general understanding of the expectations of chlorine cloud release scenarios. As noted elsewhere herein, the scenarios modeled in this pamphlet are based upon numerous assumptions prescribed by EPA in their RMP guidance. The reader must bear in mind that these assumptions are, in most cases, highly unlikely to occur.
