PFAS on EPCRA 313 List of Reportable Chemicals
Presented by Sean Mulligan, Senior Associate Engineer
Wood Environment & Infrastructure Solutions

In June 2020, the Code of Federal Regulations added 172 PFAS compounds to the EPCRA 313 list of reportable chemicals. The first TRI reports covering PFAS are due July 1, 2021. This presentation will address the following: how members determine how they process, produce, or otherwise use PFAS compounds; exemption applicability; comparing quantities to threshold reporting values and documenting those calculations; AFFF and Chrome Plating perspectives; PFAS and TRI challenges; andfuture casting about this topic for the coming years.

EPA NPDES Permitting Strategy for PFAS Monitoring
Presented by Ethan Ware, Partner
Williams Mullen

This presentation is an overview of the recent EPA NPDES permitting strategy that includes PFAS monitoring. While the interim strategy is for EPA-issued permits, companies need to think about how their state permitting programs may respond to the precedence.

Using Historical Data to Anticipate Future Risk
Presented by Mike Frawley, Terracon
What lies beneath the surface of any given site? Risk. Specifically, the risk associated with unknown conditions during project conception and initial design. Unanticipated subsurface conditions have the potential to force delays and cost overruns on even the best-managed and well-executed projects. In this digital era, mitigating risk associated with subsurface exploration and unanticipated subsurface conditions during construction is a top priority.

How, you ask? Consider for more than a century, geotechnical and environmental professionals have meticulously documented the location and conditions encountered in hundreds of thousands of sites. We are utilizing the power of GIS-processing in conjunction with this library of historical subsurface information to predict site conditions, identify potential problems, aid with site selection, and ultimately produce much more accurate preliminary budgets.
