Assessment of the Environmental Effects Assoc’d. with Wooden Bridges Preserved with Creosote, Pentachlorophenol, or Chromated Copper Arsenate
Kenneth M. Brooks. Timber bridges provide an economic alternative to concrete & steel structures, particularly in rural areas. Wooden components of these bridges are treated with chromated copper arsenate type C (CCA), pentachlorophenol, or creosote to prolong the life of the structure. However, these preservatives are lost to the environment in small amounts over time. This report describes the concentration of wood preservatives lost to adjacent environments & the biological response to these preservatives as environmental contaminants. Six bridges from various states were examined for risk assessment. Includes: previous treated-wood assess.; materials & methods. Photos & maps.
