David Lutz, P.E., NTH Vice-President and Brad Venman, NTH Toxicologist, Sr. Vice President & Quality Officer have been selected to speak at the Energy, Utility & Environment Conference in San Diego, California on February 4, 2016. They will present "Ash Containment Structures: Engineered to Comply with U.S. EPA’s New CCR Rule."
In their presentation, NTH will explain how ash containment strategies have reached a cross-roads with the publishing of the new EPA CCR rule and that an important step in managing risk and determining the compliance pathway is performing a site evaluation for probable failure mechanisms for surface impoundments and/or landfills which may cause an environmental release.
This presentation will provide a high-level policy overview of the new CCR Rule, Michigan's developing regulatory strategy and elements of a failure mode analysis. It will discuss important engineering requirements contained in the rule and provide guidance about achieving compliant ash disposal, moving forward. The presentation will also review practical implementation examples regarding solutions being implemented to bring containment structures into conformance with the new rule.
Those attending the EUEC conference can find NTH's presentation in Track H, on February 4 at 10:00 am. Those wishing to register for the conference can find the registration information by clicking here.
