Abstract [en]

Many tunnels are built below the ground water level. In case of a fire or oil spill there is a risk of environmental contamination of ground water supplies or sensitive recipients. Successful treatment of extinguishing water or spills needs rapid attention in such cases. This paper discusses the environmental consequences of a tunnel fire or an oil spill inside the tunnel. It is suggested from the present study of existing technologies, that the work of development within this field be divided into three different areas where two are pro-active while the last requires the development of new technologies for on-site collection and treatment of water. In sensitive areas, this treatment could be combined with in-situ surveys and treatments both prior to and after an incident.

 

The two pro-active steps are characterization and categorization of tunnels along with the development of a digital system where site specific properties can be modeled. Additionally, at the fire scene, new mobile technologies are needed for effective treatment.Finally the paper discusses the environmental challenges the fire officer has to with deal during an incident and the need for further education of first responders on how to deal with these issues both in terms of short term and long term incident management priorities.
