Abstract

There has been multiple risk assessments on highways for hazardous material, however there is few in hazardous rail transportation. In this study, I will create a risk assessment of the railway through WKU. Using the CAMEO system I will created threat zones and plot them in the city every half-mile to conclude where people and infrastructure will be affected the most. I discovered that there were large amounts of chemicals passing by, some are extremely dangerous to human and environmental health.
