Provide a brief history of RCRA and what aspects of waste it regulates.

Use the CSU Online Library to research a hazardous waste incident such as the Love Canal or Minimata Bay incident. Create a 7- to 10-slide PowerPoint presentation on the incident you choose. You should thoroughly describe the details of the incident and analyze the causes and effects. Your presentation should address the following

 

 Provide a brief history of RCRA and what aspects of waste it regulates.

 What was the cause of the incident? What types of waste were involved?

 What were the environmental and human health consequences?

 What regulations were in place at the time of the incident? Were they followed?

 What do you think could have been done to prevent the incident?

 Could this incident happen today with the regulations we have in place? Why, or why not?

 

Instead of using speaker’s notes, you will write a script and create a voice-over for your presentation. All sources used, including the textbook, must be cited and referenced according to APA style. Be sure to include in-text citations on your slides, and provide a reference slide that lists all of your sources.
