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.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
