    Northeast Regional Geothermal Workshop

    U.S. EPA New England Regional Laboratory
    North Chelmsford, Massachusetts
    March 29, 2011

    The states in the Northeast Region, as well as across the country, are in varying stages of regulating geothermal systems and further information and discussion on the topic is of interest to our NEIWPCC Workgroups and member states. Therefore, NEIWPCC and EPA Region I are hosted the “Northeast Regional Geothermal Workshop” on Tuesday, March 29, 2011.

    The workshop was held at the EPA New England Regional Laboratory in North Chelmsford, Massachusetts and was attended by State and Federal staff from the Region’s environmental and health agencies, as well as several private industry representatives that deal with installation, design, approvals, regulations, etc., of geothermal systems.

    The workshop included discussions and case studies which focused on the state of the geothermal industry, environmental and water resource protection concerns, design standards and recommendations, and existing and future regulations for geothermal systems.
