ENV 320 Week 3 Environmental Assessment and Recommendation Plan (2 Papers)

For more classes visit www.snaptutorial.com Read the following scenario, as a Learning Team, to perform an environmental assessment: Your team works for an environmental consulting firm that has a client who has just purchased a local municipal golf course. There are two issues that they have requested your team to investigate and make recommendations on the following:


The golf course property includes several breeding grounds for mosquitoes, including wetlands and retention ponds. Surrounding the golf course perimeter are residential areas. The state has been concerned over several incidences of West Nile Virus (WNV) and your client is interested in controlling mosquito populations in the wetland and pond areas through the use of a pesticide known as Malathion. The previous owners did not manage waste at their facility properly. The facility maintenance area has four 55-gallon drums of unmarked liquids stored behind the maintenance shed, several showing signs of leakage. There are several piles of lime near the maintenance shed; and three cabinets of old paint, spray lubricants and cleaners, solvents, and oily rags with a strong solvent smell that were used in maintaining equipment. The property includes a pro shop and a restaurant and bar where food will be prepared and eaten. Write a 1,400- to 1,750-word report that would make recommendations to the company. The report must include the following: Perform a risk assessment to determine if your team would recommend the use of Malathion for mosquito control. Use the four-step risk assessment model in Ch. 7 of your text in evaluating the risks of using Malathion, and not using Malathion and the associated risk of WNV cases. Include all aspects that may be of interest to your client--the ecological, human health, and short- and long-term economic aspects. Conduct a regulatory analysis of any components of the Toxic Substances Control Act or Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act that might need to be considered if your client chooses to use Malathion. Develop a brief waste management plan--determine any possible existing non-compliances with waste regulations, provide a list of


wastes, their regulatory classification, and your recommendations on how they should be stored and disposed. Include plans for handling the situation in the maintenance barn to comply with federal and state regulations. Cite at least four references. Format your report consistent with APA guidelines.
