National Tanks Conference

Thank you to all who attended the 27th National Tanks Conference (NTC) from September 13-15, 2022 at the Wyndham Grand in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

NEIWPCC proudly co-sponsored the NTC in partnership with U.S. EPA’s Office of Underground Storage Tanks (OUST) and the Association of State and Territorial Solid Waste Management Officials (ASTSWMO). NEIWPCC worked closely with the conference planning committee of state, tribal, and federal program staff to craft an agenda covering timely issues facing the tanks community today.

See below for some of the post-conference materials:
