Ethical Dilemmas A Company must decide were to dispose of a slightly hazardous waste, by dumping it into a canal under South Florida Water Management District or by a very expensive truck transportation system. A nearby city (Sweetwater) takes its drinking water supply near this canal. Your research shows that with the amount of waste you plan to put into the canal, the average concentration of the waste in the canal will be 8 parts per million (ppm). The EPA limit for this material has been set at 10 ppm. At the 8-ppm level, supposedly we expect no health problems, and Consumers would not be able to detect the compound in their drinking water. The decision is on your hands and as you already have a connection to the canal so you could even do it unnoticed.
