Risk Management of Accidental Water Pollution
In this chapter a fairly general risk assessment and management approach is proposed for analysing and controlling accidental—as opposed to chronic, long-term—environmental pollution events. This concept is illustrated by a simplified case study, describing (hypothetical) point-source toxic pollution of a large European river (River Danube) and its estimated effect on the downstream bank-filtered well system. A numerical example indicates the viability of the suggested approach, and shows the potentials of applying advanced optimization techniques in risk management.
