Mining Webinar Series: Eagle Mine Superfund Site Case Study
01/21/2020
Internet Seminar
The Eagle Mine Superfund Site near Minturn, Colorado is a prime example of successful EPA and State collaboration overseeing a Potentially Responsible Party conducting cleanup of an abandoned mining and milling complex. Listed on the National Priorities List in 1986, the Site began in 1983 when the State filed for natural resource damages against a PRP pursuant to CERCLA. This case study will present on the Site's technical background, robust remedy, complex regulatory framework and complicated enforcement history. Eagle Mine is a good example of a site nearing completion in the Superfund process; this case study will showcase considerations for a site approaching the finish line. Items covered will include: transition from an NPDES permit to a CERCLA Permit Equivalent Document, nexus of CERCLA and Clean Water Act, impacts of an unenforceable Consent Decree, and site strategy for completion.

ITRC Bioavailability of Contaminants in Soil: Considerations for Human Health Risk Assessment
01/23/2020
Internet Seminar
The basis for this training course is the ITRC guidance: Bioavailability of Contaminants in Soil: Considerations for Human Health Risk Assessment (BCS-1). This guidance describes the general concepts of the bioavailability of contaminants in soil, reviews the state of the science, and discusses how to incorporate bioavailability into the human health risk assessment process. The target audience for this guidance and training course are: project managers interested in decreasing uncertainty in the risk assessment which may lead to reduced remedial action costs, and risk assessors new to bioavailability or those who want additional confidence and training in the current methods and common practices for using bioavailability assessment to more accurately determine human health risk at a contaminated site. As a participant in this training you should learn to: apply the decision process to determine when a site-specific bioavailability assessment may be appropriate, use the ITRC Review Checklist to develop or review a risk assessment that includes soil bioavailability, consider factors that affect arsenic, lead and PAH bioavailability, select appropriate methods to evaluate soil bioavailability, and use tools to develop site-specific soil bioavailability estimates and incorporate them into human health risk assessment.

ProUCL Utilization 2020: Part 1: ProUCL A to Z
01/27/2020
Internet Seminar
ProUCL version 5.1.002 (5.1) is the latest update of the ProUCL statistical software package for analysis of environmental data sets with and without nondetect (ND) observations. In the first installment of a three part ProUCL e-learning seminar series, instructors will present the live interactive use of ProUCL v5.1 from initial data loading, all the way through the major steps of statistical data analysis in ProUCL. The second installment will be presenting live interactive use of ProUCL v5.1 focusing specifically on the finer points of regression and trend analysis within the ProUCL software. The final installment will focus mainly on background dataset analysis and associated background threshold value (BTV) comparisons within the ProUCL software.

CERCLA 108(b) Financial Responsibility Requirements Proposals for the Petroleum and Coal Products Manufacturing Industry and the Chemical Manufacturing Industry
01/29/2020
Internet Seminar
On January 11, 2017, the Agency made a determination to proceed with rulemakings that will either develop proposed financial responsibility requirements under CERCLA 108(b), or determine such requirements are not warranted. The second and third of the three industries for which EPA is developing rulemaking proposals are for the Petroleum and Coal Products Manufacturing Industry and the Chemical Manufacturing Industry. This webinar will provide an overview of the rulemaking proposals.

ITRC Connecting the Science to Managing LNAPL Sites a 3 Part Series (Part 3)
01/30/2020
Internet Seminar
The newly updated LNAPLs (Light Non-Aqueous Phase Liquids) 3-part training course series is based on the ITRC guidance: LNAPL Site Management: LCSM Evolution, Decision Process, and Remedial Technologies (LNAPL-3, 2018) and focuses on connecting the science to managing LNAPL sites and helping you: build upon your understanding of LNAPL behavior in the subsurface (Part 1), develop your LNAPL conceptual site model and LNAPL remedial goals (Part 2), and select/implement LNAPL technologies (Part 3). After this training series, the expectation is that you will have the skills and understanding to use ITRC science-based resources to improve decision making at your LNAPL sites. For regulators and other government agency staff, this improved understanding can hopefully be incorporated into your own LNAPL programs. It is expected that participants will attend this 3-part training series in sequence.
