These are some of the exercises and plans APC has completed in 2020:
Seminole Tribe of Florida Hazardous Materials
Commodity Flow Study
In the Winter of 2019/2020, we performed a commodity flow study to examine the movement of hazardous materials on the highways and major roads that transverse the Seminole Tribe of Florida locations. The study utilized trained spotters to gather information at specific locations within the corridors throughout a 16-week period. Each of the eight Tribe corridors were separately analyzed and reviewed. Additional information was reviewed and compared utilizing existing data related to railway, waterway, airway, pipeline and hazardous material facilities.
