Robert Glazier and Allison Kreinberg to Present on Coal Combustion Residuals in A&WMA Webinar

Robert Glazier, P.G. (Maryland) and Allison Kreinberg (Ohio) will present "The Federal Coal Combustion Residuals Rule: Implementing Groundwater Monitoring/Corrective Action Requirements" as part of the Air & Waste Management Association's (A&WMA) Webinar Series: Navigating the Changing Landscape of the Federal Coal Combustion Residuals Rule from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. E.T. on November 6, 2019.

They will co-present with Carl Eldred, Attorney, Hopping Green and Sams and Brad Runkel, Professional Engineer, Consumers Energy will be moderating the session.

Robert is a Principal Environmental Consultant based in Maryland with more than 30 years of experience focused on site remediation, risk assessment, and environmental permitting associated with solid and hazardous waste landfills as well as power generation and manufacturing facilities.

Allison is a Scientist based in Ohio focused on assessment and remediation sites impacted by chlorinated solvents and metals; support for coal combustion residual (CCR) management; and contaminant fate and transport. She currently serves as a vapor intrusion Point of Contact within the company, utilizing her extensive vapor intrusion sampling and mitigation experience.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) promulgated standards for Coal Combustion Residuals for the first time on April 17, 2015. Since that time there have been administrative challenges to the rule, a rule amendment, a court decision from the District of Columbia Court of Appeals, and now in 2019 a regulatory agenda that forecasts four major rulemakings. In the midst of these changes, a 42-month self-implementing milestone schedule has created numerous challenges to the utility industry to demonstrate consistent application to standards nationally. This webinar series will cover changes and amendments to the rule as well as highlight specific areas of risk and measures undertaken to mitigate that risk.

Founded in 1907, the A&WMA is a nonprofit, nonpartisan professional organization enhancing knowledge and expertise by providing a neutral forum for information exchange, professional development, networking opportunities, public education, and outreach to more than 5,000 environmental professionals in 65 countries. A&WMA promotes global environmental responsibility and increases the effectiveness of organizations to make critical decisions that benefit society.

Presentation Description

The requirements of the Federal Coal Combustion Residuals Rule are evolving and ambiguous. This presentation will highlight the challenges and opportunities associated with the Groundwater Monitoring and Corrective Action part of the rule in its current status, and potential changes that should be taken into account for an effective compliance program. Participants will learn what ambiguities and opportunities exist in the current rule, how they affect remedy selection, how forensic tools might be used to avoid, or limit, the scope of groundwater corrective measures, and key issues that may arise during public involvement in the remedy selection process.
