Come hear the latest on Institutional Controls (IC) during this webinar. Assuming you know the basics about ICs: (1) they are non-engineered components of a remedy, including legal and communication mechanisms to protect the remedy, and (2) most Superfund sites require effective ICs to ensure that remedies remain protective. However, as always, the "devil is in the details." The planning and implementation of ICs has come a long way since the early days of Superfund, as we have had to create and innovate to make ICs work for unique situations. Also, new developments help us with our endeavor for effective ICs.
The session will start with a discussion of the latest guidance: the "Planning, Implementing, Monitoring, and Enforcing of Institutional Controls" (PIME) Guidance. We will also briefly touch on the 2011 "Recommended Evaluation of Institutional Controls, Supplement to the Five-year Review Guidance" and other pending IC guidance. This is followed by case study examples involving local ordinances in Region 7, and complex IC issues in Region 5. Finally, a special topic of implementing ICs on Tribal Lands will be examined. All questions and issues related to ICs are welcome!
