                             FOREWORD
Under a series of documents exchange agreements with environmental
agencies in other countries, EPA is building a collection of environ-
mental reports issued by foreign governments and international organi-
zations.  This is a monthly announcement listing of foreign documents
received through the exchange agreements.

The  original documents can be obtained through the Library Systems
Branch (see back page for order form).   More detailed English abstracts
can be provided when required.  Full text translations, which are expen-
sive, should be requested only when essential for operation of EPA
programs.  Translation Services Requisition form #1350-1 is used to re-
quest translations.

A computerized search system is being developed which will allow future
retrieval of these summaries by:
                                           c.  type of document

This series, devoted to summaries of government reports and other pertinent
literature and focusing on the legislative, organizational, economic, and
social aspects of environmental protection, supplements foreign scientific
and  technical literature abstracted by other EPA information services.

Ultimately, EPA plans to assemble a major collection of foreign govern-
ment environments documents and to develop several approaches to the
dissemination of this information to EPA staff.  This announcement of
documents received is the first step.

                     DILEMMA CREATED, ON THE ONE HAND, BY AIP AND NOISE POLLDTION AND, ON THE OTHER, BY THE COST OF

                     FACTORS.  ATTENTION IS DIRECTED TO THE USE OF ULECTRIC VEHICLES CHIEFLY AS A MEANS OF THE  POBLIC

    THIS ARTICLE, ONE OF A SERIES APPEARING IN THE ENVIRONMENTAL JOURNAL "UHWELT" ON POLLUTION
PROBLEMS IN MAJOR WEST GERMAN CITIES AND WHAT IS BEING DONE TO CONTROL THEM, DEALS WITH
FRANKFURT/MAIN.  THE AUTHOR CALLS THE ENVIRONMENTAL SITUATION IN THIS CITY ALARMING:  INTOLERABLE
QUANTITIES OF CARBON OXIDES, SULFUR DIOXIDE, LEAD, AND NITROGEN OXIDE IN THE AIP; PERSISTENT
NOISE LEVELS OF 85 PHONS AT SOME LOCATIONS; A WARM AND OVERCAST SKY, WITH FREQUENT WEATHER
INVERSIONS; AND A CONTINUING CONTAMINATION OP THE MAIN PIVER.  THE SITUATION IS COMPLICATED BY
BUILT-UP SUBURBAN AREAS WITH HIGH-RISE CONTRUCTION THAT IMPEDES THE NECESSARY FLOW OF FRESH AIR
INTO THE CITY.  THE AUTHOP DESCRIBES SOME OF THE PLANS TO CONTROL THE ENVIRONMENTAL DETERIORATION,
MANY OP WHICH HAVE FOUNDERED.  SO HELPLESS IS THE SITUATION THAT AN ENVIRONMENTAL OFFICIAL SEES  AN
IMMEDIATE REMEDY IN THE USE OF HANDKEPCHIEFS DURING SMOG ALERTS.  IN THE AREA OF SOLID WASTE,
HOWEVER, FPANKFURT HAS MADE SOMF PROGRESS, THANKS TO AMBITIOUS PLANNING.

    THIS ARTICLE REPRINTS FROM HANSARD THE TEXT OF THE APRIL 28, 1972 HOUSE OP COMMONS DEBATE ON
THE ENVIRONMENTAL CRISIS AND DEPLETION OF NATURAL RESOURCES, WITH THE REPORT A BLUEPRINT FOR
SURVIVAL SERVING AS THE BACKDROP AGAINST WHICH THE CRISIS AND ITS SOLUTIONS ARE ARGUED.  HOUSE
MEMBER DOUGLAS-HANN RAISED THE INTERRELATED PROBLEMS OF POLLUTION, POPULATION, FOOD PRODUCTION,
NATURAL RESOURCES, AND INDUSTRILIZATICN.  IN RESPONDING, THE UNDEH-SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE
ENVIRONMENT, ELDON GRIFFITHS, STATED THAT TODAY THE AIR AND RIVERS IN GREAT BRITAIN ARE IN THE MAIN
LESS POLLUTED THAN THEY WERE 50 OR EVEN 10 YEARS AGO, THAT LOW GROWTH RATES DO NOT ENHANCE THE
ENVIRONMENT, AND THAT THE POLLUTION FIGHT CONSISTS OF THE PURSUIT OF ONGLAHOROUS DETAILS.  "FAE
FROM SAVING THE ENVIRONMENT, ECONOMIC STAGNATION CAN LEAVE US INSUFFICIENTLY WELL-BREACHED TO PRO-
TECT IT."

    THIS ARTICLE DEALS PRIMARILY WITH THE  ESTABLISHMENT OF SANITARY PROTECTIVE  ZONES  AROUND
POLLUTING INDUSTRIES, ALONG TRANSPORTATION  ROUTES AND IN CITIES.   WITHIN  SUCH ZONES,  ONLY
NON-PESIDENTIAL BUILDINGS MAY BE CONSTRUCTED, SOURCES OF POLLUTION ARE  RESTRICTED  AND GREEN AREAS
OF SHRUBS AND TREES ARE BSTABLSIHED IN SUCH  A MANNER AS TO IMPROVE DISPERSION OF  AIR  POLLUTION SO
THAT CONCENTRATIONS IN POPULATED AREAS DO  NOT EXCEED HEALTH STANDARDS.  TECHNICAL  MATERIAL IS
PRESENTED ON PRINCIPLES IN PLANNING OF SUCH  PROTECTIVE ZONES.   THE AUTHOR  POINTS  OUT  THAT  SANITARY
PROTECTIVE ZONES CAN BE EFFECTIVE ONLY IF  THE GENERAL LEVEL OF  POLLUTION  IS  LIMITED.   HE  STRESSES
THE NEED TO LIMTT THE QUANTITY OF POLLUTANTS ENTERING THE  ATMOSPHERE BY ESTABLISHING  STANDARDS OF
MA-XIMUM PERMISSIBLE DISCHARGE OF POLLUTANTS, IMPROVING TECHNOLOGICAL PROCESSES,  AND INCREASING
THE USE OF PURIFICATION APPARATUS.

STANDARDS ON MAXIMUM PERMISSIBLE DISCHARGE OF POLLUTANTS ARE CURRENTLY BEING STUDIED  AT  THE CENTRAL

FEEL THAT THESE STANDARDS SHOULD NOT BE CONSIDERED AS ABSOLUTE  REQUIREMENTS  BECAUSE THEY  WOULD
REQUIRE ADJUSTMENT ACCORDING TO LOCAL CLIMATIC CONDITIONS AND  REGIONAL PROBLEMS OF  INDUSTRIAL
CONCENTRATION, BUT THAT THEY WOULD STILL BE OF GREATER VALUE IN DESIGING  NON-POLLUTING INDUSTRIAL

                     COMPREHENSIVE, UNCOMPROMISING LONG-RANGE PLAN FOR ITS ATTAINMENT.  WHILE THERE IS GENERAL AGREEMENT

                     PIAN.  THE AUTHOR CALLS FOR THE COLLECTION AND COORDINATION OF FACTS AND FINDINGS ON A GLOBAL BASIS

    THIS AIRGPAK, PREPARED BY O.S. EMBASSY PERSONNEL IN TOKYO, SUMMARIZES OBJECTIVES SUGGESTED
BY JAPAN'S CENTRAL COUNCIL FOR ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION CONTROL.  AN INTERIM REPORT FROM THE COUNCIL
WARNS THAT CURRENT ESTIMATES INDICATE POLLUTANTS WILL INCREASE 2- TP U-FOLD BY 1985 OVER THEIR
1970 LEVELS UNLESS NEB POLICIES ARE ADOPTED.  STRONGLY URGING THE UPGRADING OF JAPAN'S POLLUTION
CONTROL EFFORT, THE REPORT BREAKS NEW GROUND BY SETTING 1985 AS THE TARGET YEAR FOR A COMPLETELY
HARMLESS ENVIRQNMENT.  IN ADDITION, THE COUNCIL REPORT RECOMMENDS SETTING INTERIM GOALS FOP
ACCOMPLISHING ASPECTS OF THIS.  U.S. EMBASSY PERSONNEL, COMMENTING ON THIS REPOPT, POINT OUT THAT
IT IS PARTICULARLY NOTEWORTHY THAT IT RECOMMENDS THAT ECONOMIC GROWTH BE SOUGHT ONLY WITHIN THE
EXTENT TO WHICH THE QUALITY OF THE ENVIRONMENT CAN BE IMPROVED AND PROTECTED.

                     OFTEN  NOT REFLECTED  IN IAWS AND ORDINANCES AND THAT,  IN FACT,  COURTS FREQUENTLY REGARD TRAFFIC AND

                     VALUES MEASURED AT VARIOUS SOURCES.   ENVIRONMENTAL PLANNING,  PARTICULARLY AS IT REGARDS NOISE, HAS
                     OFTEN  BEEN  FAULTY   AND UNWORKABLE,  FOR IT HAS FAILED  TO TAKE  INTO ACCOUNT THE UNITY OF HANS NEEDS
                     AND  ACTIVITIES:  WORK SUBSISTENCE,  REST, AND LEISURE.   COMPROMISES APE BADE BETWEEN THE ACCEPTABLE
                     AND  THE ECONOMICALLY JUSTIFIABLE.   ENVIRONMENTAL PLANNING MUST SEEK TO REDUCE TO A MINIMUM THE
                     INCIDENCE OF  STREET  TRAFFIC.  IN A  SIDEBAR TO THE ARTICLE, THE AUTHOR OUTLINES BRIEFLY MEASURES
                     THAT HAVE BEEN TAKEN IN SOME EUROPEAN CITIES TO CURTAIL TRAFFIC NOISE DURING NIGHT HOURS.

    THIS NEWS ARTICLE PEPORTS WHAT REST GEPHAN AIRLINES ARE DOING TO MEET THE INCREASINGLY
VOCIFEROUS CITIZEN DEMAND FOR QUIETER LANDING AND TAKEOFF OPERATIONS.  AMONG THE MEASURES THAT
LUFTHANSA IS TAKING ARE:  AVOIDING FLIGHT PATTERNS OVEP DENSELY POPULATED AREAS WHEN POSSIBLE,
REDUCTION OF ENGINE POWER DURING AIRPORT APPROACH, DIFFERENT BRAKING TECHNIQUES, MORE RAPID ASCENTS
FOLLOWING TAKEOFF, AND THE ACQUISITION OF QUIETER ENGINES COMPLYING WITH THE STRICTER DIRECTIVES OF
THE U.S. FEDERAL AVIATION ADMINISTRATION.  OLDER JET AIRCRAFT, EXCEPTING THE BOEING 707, COULD BE
MODIFIED TO ACCOMMODATE THESE QUIETER ENGINES, THE ARTICLE POINTS OUT, BUT THAT WOULD COST THE WEST
GERMAN AIRLINES AT LEAST EIGHT MILLION MARKS.  EVEN IF THIS WERE FEASIBLE, IT IS NOT KNOWN WHETHER
AIRPORT AUTHORITIES WOULD LIFT THE BAN ON NIGHT FLIGHTS.  THIS BAN, ISSUED AS A RESULT OF CITIZEN
COMPLAINTS, ALREADY COSTS THE AIRLINES A GREAT DEAL OF MONEY.

PERTAIN TO THE TPADE IN AND SALE OF POISONOUS PRODUCTS AND THE MINISTERIAL CIRCULARS THAT PERTAIN
SPECIFICALLY TO INSECTICIDES AND DISINFECTANTS USED IN AGRICULTURE.  THE CIRCULARS REQUIRE THE
REGISTRATION OF SUCH PRODUCTS AND THEIR PROPER LABELING.  THE USE OF INSECTICIDES AND SIMILAR
PRODUCTS, IT IS CONCLUDED, CONSTITUTE A SERIOUS SOCIO-MEDICAL PROBLEM, INVOLVING NOT ONLY
AGRICULTURE AND INDUSTRY BUT THE ENTIRE CONSUMING POPULATION BY REASON OF THE PERSISTENCY OF THE
RESIDUES OF SUCH PRODUCTS.  THESE SHOULD BE STUDIED MOPE THOROUGHLY WITH THE VIEW OF DEVELOPING

    THIS ESSAY ADDRESSES ITSELF TO THE PROBLEM OF WHAT INDUSTRY AND THE STATE CAN DO TO REDUCE
SOLID-WASTE POLLUTION.  THERE ARE THREE POSSIBILITIES FOR ADEQUATE DISPOSAL, ACCORDING TO THE
AUTHOR, A CHEMICAL INDUSTRY EXECUTIVE:  RECYCLING, RE-USE OF THE HASTES AS THE PAW MATERIAL FOR
NEW PRODUCTS, AND DUMPING IN AS ENVIRONMENTALLY HARMLESS A MANNER AS POSSIBLE; THE LAST BEING THE
LEAST DESIRABLE ALTERNATIVE.  THE AUTHOR RECOMMENDS THAT THE STATE AND INDUSTRY, WORKING JOINTLY,
IMPLEMENT THE FIRST TWO ALTERNATIVES.  HE SUGGESTS, AS EXAMPLES, THE INCORPORATION OF WASTE
ELIMINATION AS A MAJOR FACTOR IN INDUSTRIAL PLANNING, GREATER USE OF DEPRECIATION ALLOWANCES FOR
THE PURCHASE OF MODBHN ANTI-POLLUTION DEVICES AND WASTE-DISPOSAL MACHINERY, AND THE REQUIREMENT
BY THE STATE THAT MATERIALS USED FOR NEW CONSTRUCTION CONTAIN A GIVEN PERCENTAGE OF PROCESSED
SOLID WASTES.

     GENERAL

    THE AUSTRALIAN SENATE STUDY IS CONCERNED WITH TYPES OF HATER POLLUTION AFFECTING LAKES,
STREAMS, RESERVOIRS, UNDERGROUND HATER AND  SEA COASTS.  THE THREE MAIN PROBLEM AREAS DISCUSSED  ARE
POLLUTION BY SEWAGE EFFLUENTS, INDUSTRIAL POLLUTION AND SALINITY.  THE REPORT DISCUSSES GENERAL
PROBLEMS OF POLLUTION OP THE HATER BY ORGANIC WASTES, BACTERIA, PETROLEUM, DETERGENTS, PESTICIDES
AND SOU EROSION.  SPECIFIC WATER POLLUTION PROBLEMS IN THE VARIOUS STATES AND TERRITORIES AS HELL
AS EXISTING LEGISLATIVE PROGRAMS ARE EXAMINED.  THE REPORT IS CRITICAL OF THE LACK OF A
COMPREHENSIVE NATIONAL POLICY IN AUSTRALIA  AND OF POOR COORDINATION OF DIFFERENT REGIONAL
PR03P.AHS.  LEGISLATIVE PROGRAMS IN VARIOUS  COUNTRIES, INCLUDING THE UNITED STATES, ARE DISCUSSED.
THE REPORT RECOMMENDS THAT A NATIONAL HATER COMMISSION BE POSHED WITH AUTHORITY TO PROPOSE AND
ENFORCE LEGISLATION AS WELL AS TO CONDUCT RESEARCH.

                     ALL THE RIVERS IS THE  SAALE,  BUT ALSO SEVERELY POLLUTED ARE THE PLEISSE, MULDE, SCHWAEZE EISTER,

                     1972) AND FOR ITS APPLICATION OF STIFF PENALTIES FOR INDUSTRIAL CONCERNS WHICH FLAUNT THE LAW AND
                     NEGLECT THE  PUBLIC  INTEREST.   YET,  SOMF INDUSTRIES WOULD RATHER RISK BEING CAUGHT AND PAY THE FINES

OPERATION AND MINOR BREAKDOHNS; THE PERIL OF A MAJOR ACCIDENT, PERHAP'S TRIGGERED BY SABOTAGE; AND
POLLUTION OF HATER COURSES FROM THERMAL HASTEHATER.  SHOULD THE TOLERANCE LEVEL OF 26 DEGREES
