Foreword


           An important issue in public policy decisionmaking is protecting the
           environment by limiting the amount of pollution that can be tolerated
           without endangering the health and welfare of human beings and the
           ecological systems in which we live. Protecting the environment
           involves regulatory and financial assistance programs to control and
           abate hazardous wastes, toxic chemicals, and other pollutants that seep
           into the nation’s water, contaminate the land, and poison the air. Which
           pollutants and what levels of controls are needed, how to balance
           environmental protection with other equally desirable national goals,
           and how to maximize the billions of dollars spent on environmental
           controls-all   represent important national concerns.

           This bibliography includes information on U.S. General Accounting
           Office (GAO) documents issued between August 1988 and April 1990
           that directly or indirectly discuss environmental protection. A previous
           GAO environmental bibliography GAO/RCED-89-23, included
           documents issued between January 1985 and August 1988. Although the
           Resources, Community, and Economic Development Division (RCED) is
           GAO’s lead division for reviews of environmental protection, a broad
           interrelationship exists between the environmental area and other
           areas GAO addresses such as health, energy, transportation,
           agriculture, and natural resources. This bibliography, therefore,
           includes information on documents issued by other GAO divisions and
           offices that have linkages to environmental protection issues.

           This bibliography should be useful for general information and research
           purposes and for understanding issues in the environmental protection
           area that are being addressed by GAO. Questions regarding its contents
           should be directed to Peter Guerrero, Associate Director, or Bernice
           Steinhardt, Issue Area Planner, U.S. General Accounting Office, Room
           M-1002, 401 M Street, SW., Washington, D.C. 20460, (2021 252-0600.

           environmental protection or other areas, or in requesting
           bibliographic searches on a specific topic, should call the GAO
           Document Handling and Information Service (202) 2’75-6241. The

                                        This Environmental Protection Bibliography contains citations and
                                        abstracts of relevant documents released by GAO from August 1988
                                        through April 1990. It updates the previous bibliography
                                        (GAO/RCED-89-231, which included documents released from January
                                        1985 through August 1988. Included are references to reports, speeches,
                                        testimonies, and other GAO documents. This bibliography can be used
                                        for a variety of purposes, including in-depth research into a specific
                                        topic, searching for a particular document, maintaining current
                                        awareness, and general information.




HowToUseThe                             The bibliography is organized into two sections: an INDEX SECTION
Bibliography                            (yellow pages) and a CITATION SECTION (white pages).

                                        The INDEX SECTION is the key for locating references to related
                                        documents cited in this bibliography. The section is comprised of four
                                        separate indexes that classify information according to:
                                        Subject

                                        Agency or organization
                                        (Includes both Federal agencies and nongovernmental     corporate bodies)

                                        Congressional affiliation
                                        (Includes entries under relevant congressional committees and
                                        individual Representatives and Senators)
                                        Document number
                                        (Includes entries arranged by report number and by B-number and date)

                                        Reference from the index entries to the corresponding citations is
                                        provided by a unique six-digit accession number assigned to each
                                        citation. This accession number should also be used to request copies of
                                        the actual document described in the citation.
                                        A sample entry is shown at the beginning of each index and at the
                                        beginning of the Citation Section.
