This guide ""Accidental Water Pollution by Hazardous Noxious Subastances", produced in collaboration with Transport Canada, is designed as an operational document to be used by professional responders in the event of an HNS spill.
Its objective is to serve as a decision support tool for staff at incident management centres and for responders in the field.
The recommendations set out in this guide are based on expertise developed by Cedre and Transport Canada in terms of approaches to, assessment of and response to accidental water pollution.
Regulations, prevention and organizational issues are not covered in this guide. Likewise, safety- and security-related actions, although mentioned, are not discussed in detail given that the responders in charge are assumed to be familiar with them and adept in their use.
