Abstract: Dealing with hazardous wastes is one of the most important problems facing American society today. The technical and planning dimensions of this problem have been the subject of intense study, as well as legislation and regulations. Coming to grips in a concrete fashion with the problems posed by hazardous wastes will also depend on understanding some of the geographic aspects of their generation and management. This paper considers the locations in Ohio where hazardous wastes are generated, in the context of the Capacity Assurance Program (CAP) instituted under the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA), and suggests some of the factors that will require consideration in order to use the CAP planning process for substantial improvement of hazardous waste management in Ohio.
