This document, published in 1984, has proved to be extremely popular. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) limited the original production to 100 copies because of budget constraints. In the early 1990's I managed to get another 200 copies of the document made from a first-printing copy, and as a result some of the figures in these copies were practically illegible.

I have re-created the document as a portable document format (PDF) file with emphasis on rendering as much of the document in text rather than merely capturing images of each page. Although successful, the PDF file of the complete document is still approximately 3.2 MB in size. Therefore, I have divided the document into subsections to facilitate downloading over the Internet. The links to these documents are provided above.
