EBC Rhode Island Program: RIDEM Implementation of the Generator Improvements Rule and Final Rule Regarding Hazardous Waste Pharmaceuticals

 

June 4, 2019 - 7:30 AM - 12 PM

 

RISEP and EBC will provide information on the RIDEM implementation of the Generator Improvements Rule and the Final Rule Regarding Hazardous Waste Pharmaceuticals. 

The Generator Improvements Rule was finalized by EPA in November 2016 and is anticipated to become effective in Rhode Island in late 2019. The final Management Standards for Hazardous Waste Pharmaceuticals and Amendment to the P075 Listing for Nicotine (the Hazardous Waste Pharmaceutical Rule) was published in the February 22, 2019 Federal Register. These rule changes affect all hazardous waste generators in Rhode Island.

This program will present a summary of these two final rules and provide an update on the use of myRCRAid and the e-Manifest system. In addition to technical details, RIDEM will discuss the process for integrating these rules into the Rhode Island Hazardous Waste Regulations and the proposed effective dates for implementation.

PFAS Sampling for Environmental

Professionals

RI Foundation – Monday, June 17, 2019

8:00 AM to 5:00 PM

 

COURSE OVERVIEW

The objective of this course is to inform LSPs, LEPs, LSRPs, PEs and other environmental professionals about the particular difficulties and nuances involved in the sampling of per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in environmental media.

This course has been developed to answer the following questions:

  1. Why do environmental professionals need to know about PFAS sampling?
  2. What are PFAS and what are their characteristic properties (chemistry and toxicology)?  
  3. Where are PFAS found, both historically and currently?  
  4. How do environmental professionals identify PFAS-containing materials?  
  5. What changes need to be made to sampling protocols and procedures when sampling for PFAS?   
  6. How can environmental professionals best assure that they are obtaining representative and accurate PFAS data? 

This course was developed for environmental professionals and will provide information on the issues regarding sampling, sample handling and analysis. It will include an overview of PFAS chemical properties as it relates to the issues in sampling and sample preservation and handling, as well as detailed discussion of the special sampling and handling techniques required for investigating PFAS in environmental media.  It will present a case study on the sampling techniques and practices used in the sampling of drinking water sources performed by Weston & Sampson for the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management (RIDEM) and present the findings of a combined TRC /Alpha Analytical study on PFAS presence in common environmental sampling equipment.  It will also discuss analytical methods for PFAS and special sample preservation and handling techniques and the potential legal issues that environmental professionals face when deciding whether or not to perform sampling for PFAS.

Abstract:

 

Working with Nature to Detoxify a Growing Range of Contaminants

 

Extensive research and innovations in project execution over the past two decades have made bioremediation of chlorinated solvents, particularly tetrachloroethene (PCE) and trichloroethene (TCE), a reliable cleanup practice. Addressing recalcitrant byproducts, rebound issues, and meeting stringent cleanup goals is now possible due to advances in the ability to select and deliver electron donor and nutrients (i.e., biostimulation) and the ability to identify and apply key microorganisms (bioaugmentation).

 

Biostimulation and bioaugmentation are commonly used and cost effective aquifer remediation techniques that are addressing a growing range of groundwater contaminants, making them an increasingly practical site cleanup option for complex and challenging sites, including those with emerging contaminants.
