I haven't found many options locally, aside from the occasional AEG field trip. In Pennsylvania, the PCPG has some good courses from 1-2 days, but most people aren't near any of those and they are expensive and require travel for me (I'd like to know where else these are found). Other than that, I'm stuck with online classes & webinars from ITRC, AIPG, or some other source. Many of them feel like a waste of time.
RegReview offers annual PG review courses at different locations.
I'd like to sell my employer on university courses, if I could make the time. Most of my employers have left me with only free or inexpensive options online, which are often low quality.
Yes,Carpet and rug cleaning methods are totally different.Some of them use to clean their rugs with the vacuum cleaner and some them uses the washing technique,for which a special solution is provided in market.Both have their own different ways as one is too tough and one is delicate if we think about the designs on it.To know more about the detail carpet and rug cleaning you can visit here.
My first thought was a bored well, but those are generally concrete and that casing looks like steel, so I think that's unlikely.
Can you tie a bailer to some string and bring up the liquid? It may be a well, or some sort of pipe clean out. I know I've found similar pipes on site visits and they serve as clean outs to the septic pipes.
I would be wary of just calling it a note worthy non-issue. Foundry sand can carry heavy metals. Machine shops could have had other chemicals. It is a tough one, but I'd at least call it out as a possible issue, maybe even a REC? Interested to hear other thoughts....
Was this vacant land used for anything in the past? If so I would be worried about what kind of chemicals and supplies were carried along the spur. There could have been spills that occurred on the Property as a result of unloading/loading the cars.
If the property is historically vacant, then I think JGs comment and attachment is a good call. I'd say there is possible impact from historical use and a Phase II is recommended.
That's is very helpful, thank you!
Yes. I generally consider RR as a REC. Here's a good reference to get you started.
How deep is groundwater - could this be a well of some sort?
A quick update on generating ASTM guidance for groundwater plume mapping:
We held a first informal call on the plume mapping standard. The attendees were primarily agency and water resources, but we had a few who produce plume maps. We have started the drafting of the guidance as well as the development of a plume data schema.
The users of the standard would be water resource agencies, local governments, developers and Phase I preparers. The standard would cause a common format for describing groundwater plumes, but also would likely be careful not to interfere with detailed representation of a single plume for corrective action. In use one could anticipate a separate structured data file that would accompany a filed groundwater monitoring report. An oversight agency would aggregate the filings, and then generate a "composite" plume map, but the composited maps could also be viewed or aggregated by others.
An ASTM session on the standard will be April 29 at 8 AM in Anaheim at Committee Week.
Please message me if you want to track this progress or contribute. Please note if you want to be "active" or "information only". A copy of a presentation of the effort that was given in at the California CUPA conference is at this link - this mostly was striving to introduce the use case.
Inside of pipe.
Just because the State has been notified that the tanks have been removed does not mean proper closure was conducted. I think it's a significant datagap that prevents the EP from coming to an informed conclusion about the property and I'd call the tank pit an REC.
No, I would not call this an REC. There is no evidence of hazardous materials associated with the mulch.
First of all thank you for taking the time to read & comment! Its greatly appreciated.
I definitely agree that there are much larger environmental issues going on, but sometimes I like to write about something close to home that I find interesting. As a big coffee drinker I never really thought twice about tossing a pod in the trash and I'd imagine most others don't either. I merely wanted to take a look at how even the smallest act can have a reaction.
I tried to take look at the solutions & admittedly discussed there not being a realistic one. As I mentioned, I find taking a K-Cup apart for reuse to be overkill.
nowadays we charge for hard copies, we just upload and let them have at the report
