    Abstract

    Work is in progress by ASTM Subcommittee F20.13 on Treatment on a series of guidelines covering the use of dispersants in nonsaline environments. These environments include freshwater ponds, lakes, and streams, as well as land. The guidelines are to be patterned after those produced by an earlier task group of the same committee covering saline environments. This paper describes what has been accomplished thus far. Participation by those interested, whether an ASTM member or not, is welcomed.
