    You know that expression “there’s nothing new under the sun”? 
    – well, that might not always be true.

    Several man-made contaminants, including most notably Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOAs) and Perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOSs), are catching headlines as newly discovered threats to human health and the environment.  This has been most evident in a discussion of municipal drinking water supplies. Some of the compounds have been determined by EPA and State regulatory agencies to be harmful in the part per trillion range. The regulatory and consulting sectors are working hard to fully understand the threat posed by these ubiquitous chemicals, which will have a direct effect on landowners and businesses, alike.

    During this webinar we will discuss and explore the following topics:

    • What are “Emerging Contaminants,” and why are they on the radar?
    • What is being done about Emerging Contaminants by regulatory agencies?
    • Why are Emerging Contaminants a concern for your business?
    • How can Emerging Contaminants be considered and analyzed by your business from a risk perspective?
    • What are the next steps in investigating and/or assessing your business’s risk?

  • Industrial Wastewater - Best Practices and Lessons Learned

    Improved water management in metal finishing facilities can reduce the volume and cost of raw water and water treatment in facility operations. However, many times facility operators do not have the time to identify and review water and cost reduction options.  For example, optimized water management will reduce the mass of contaminants generated, thus improving the quality of a wastewater discharge and ultimately the environmental impact of a facility’s discharge.

    This webinar will discuss the typical “best practices” and strategies used in the metal finishing industry based on HRP’s experience, and will also enable a plant manager to compare their operations with typical industry practices and develop a plan for optimizing water management in their facility.  The webinar will include:

    •           Water overview – approach to overall water balance in metal finishing industry
    •           Wastewater chemistry
    •           Effluent treatment technologies
    •           Wastewater permitting
    •           Wastewater recycle, reduce and reuse options/issues
    •           WWTP costs – capital and operating
    •           Best practices management
    •           Wastewater benchmarking

    The Hazardous Waste Generator Improvements Rule was published in the Federal Register on November 28, 2016.  The objectives of this new rule is to:

    • Increase flexibility for generators of hazardous waste
    • Improve environmental protection
    • Improve generator compliance
    • Reorganize hazardous waste generator regulations
    • Correct technical errors

    This rule will take effect on May 30, 2017 for generators located in Iowa, Alaska, US territories and tribal lands.  Authorized states will be required to adopt the more stringent provisions by July 1, 2018 (2019 if state law change is needed).  Authorized states may choose to not adopt the less stringent provisions or those provisions that are considered equally stringent to existing rules.

    The purpose of this webinar is to introduce you to the key provisions of this rule change so that when your state adopts these rules (either all or in part), you are ready for compliance!

"I started in environmental in 1981, switched to safety only in 1997, and now am back over the group that loads out our hazardous waste.  This was my second year with you instructing.  You do a very good job.  Your DOT session was definitely the most challenging I have ever had for a review course.  You covered very many interesting points.  Thank you for the work you put into the preparation.  It was good for my guys (especially one new one) to see the breadth of responsibility his job now carries outside of the plant, and also the potential ramifications for not performing each task accurately."

"Overall I thought the training was well thought out and applicable to the issues we deal with day in and day out."
