Webinar Archive: LUST Corrective Action

NEIWPCC works with partners to develop training webinars aimed at a national audience in state and tribal LUST cleanup programs. The goal of NEIWPCC’s LUST corrective action training webinars is to improve LUST program performance, increase technical capability and understanding, and minimize the impact of UST releases to the environment. You can find information on our most recent training webinars below.


Lessons Learned from Using HRSC at LUST Sites (6/24/2020)

This webinar will present the data analyzed from 150 different leaking underground storage tank sites that use High-Resolution Site Characterization (HRSC) from across the country. The presentation will help explain lessons learned from these sites as well as limitations and recommendations on how to use this data to make remediation decisions. We will also hear from LUST program managers of Alabama and South Carolina and the lessons learned from their experience using HRSC.

Webinar Speakers:
John Sohl, President and CEO | Columbia Technologies

Dorothy Malaier, P.G. Chief, UST Corrective Action State and Federal Funds Section | Alabama Department of Environmental Management

Ashleigh Thrash, P.G. Section Manager, Assessment & Non-Permitted Petroleum Section | South Carolina Department of Health & Environmental Control

Evaluating Remediation Workplans (6/8/2020)

This webinar is designed to assist Leaking Underground Storage Tank professionals and regulators who create and evaluate remediation workplans for LUST sites. Our speakers will be highlighting resources from ITRC and EPA that assist in the selection of specific remediation technologies, including but not limited to MPE, AS/SVE and Natural Source Zone Depletion (NSZD).

Speakers:
Tom Fox, Environmental Protection Specialist | Division of Oil & Public Safety

Bill Brasher, Water Resource Control Engineer | California State Water Resources Control Board

NEIWPCC UST/LUST Workgroup Meeting (5/6/20)

Below you will find recordings of two “LUST Success Stories” shared during NEIWPCC’s most recent UST/LUST Workgroup Meeting.

NEIWPCC’s UST/LUST Workgroup is comprised of staff from our member states, EPA regional offices, and EPA’s Office of Underground Storage Tanks (OUST). We meet throughout the year to discuss challenges and share success stories related to UST inspections; LUST cleanup; state cleanup funds; and working with UST owners, operators, and contractors within the states.

Speakers:

Allison Forrest-Lauippa | Environmental Analyst, LUST Coordination Program, Connecticut DEEP

Joe Cunningham, PE | Senior Environmental Engineer, Office of Land Revitalization and Sustainable Materials Management, Rhode Island DEM
