    A Proposal To Improve Institutional Control Effectiveness Through Better Mapping
    Content:

    Colleagues,

    We hope our proposal to improve the mapping of institutional controls will inform your due diligence efforts. Now ICs are accepted by many agencies with unusable mapping that limits their consideration in Phase One reporting.  

    Post on Institutional Control Mapping

    If you read the post, you enjoy a primer on the recording process.  We welcome any insights to assess current practice in mapping ICs and ECs.

    Thanks,

    Does Oregon Need to Step Up?
    Entry posted April 18, 2015 by MargaretThiboSuper Contributor in Current Environmental Issues > Current Environmental Issues Blog public
    Title:
    Does Oregon Need to Step Up?
    Entry:

    Portland, Oregon officials recently held a big press event with one of the heads of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to celebrate the state being awarded a $1.5 million federal grant that would replace twenty-three old diesel trucks and retrofit the filters on three others. The event was meant to celebrate a step toward reducing a huge air pollution issue linked to lung cancer, heart attacks, low birth weights, asthma, as well as other breathing problems. The new engines and filters will increase environmental safety by creating 90% less toxic waste than outdated models.

    While reducing the amount of air pollution caused by diesel engines is an important current environmental issue, critics argue that 26 engines is a laughable accomplishment to celebrate when there are approximately 146,756 diesel engines in Oregon that have not been updated.

    These critics argue that the reason the state has not scratched the surface of the diesel engine pollution problem is because they only rely on the federal EPA for funding. Surrounding states have used their own funds to spearhead efforts. The state of California has spent hundreds of millions of dollars and Washington State has spent upwards of $50 million. In contrary Oregon has spent approximately $1 million of its own money.

    The best way for Oregon residents to get the state to fund a comprehensive cleanup effort is to lobby and pressure their legislature. Clean air officials from other states advised that the best way to garner public support and outrage is to explore the amount of diesel engine pollutants created by the school buses that children ride daily. The public will become more interested in the issue once they know that their children are being exposed to toxic fumes each day on the way to and from school.

    Despite criticism it is still a step in the right direction to have twenty-six outdated diesel engines replaced. The press conference may have been more of an opportunity for local politicians to brag about their gallant efforts, but at least it was an opportunity for the public to be made aware that an air quality issue even exists.

    The University of Central Florida Reflects
    Entry posted April 18, 2015 by MargaretThiboSuper Contributor in Current Environmental Issues > Current Environmental Issues Blog public
    Title:
    The University of Central Florida Reflects
    Entry:

    Students at the University of Central Florida (UCF) recently made a bold statement to bring the current environmental issue of land pollution and the importance of sustainability to the general campus population. Student groups like the UCF Student Government Association did so by dumping approximately 200,000 plastic bottles into the campus reflecting pond. Students normally enjoy the Florida sun in between classes or to eat lunch were shocked at the sight. The thousands of plastic bottles immediately got students talking, and more importantly asking questions.

    Members of the Student Government Association were on location to answers any questions and concerns about what was going on. They hoped to raise awareness about recycling efforts, but also wanted to introduce students to the concept of sustainability. The visual representation really demonstrated the effect that each and every bottle consumed can have on the environment. While plastic bottles offer convenience and mobility, the sad truth is the majority of them will not be recycled, but rather trashed to end up in a landfill, or worse littered only to end up wherever the wind blows them.

    Environmental groups at UCF have been planning the event for quite some time and chose April to execute the plan since it is Earth Month. The groups worked with the University’s housekeeping service and gathered all of the plastic bottles. Overall, about 100 volunteers picked through the school’s trash until they had enough bottles to really make a splash.

    The hope is that students will take the knowledge of sustainability that they gain and take it with them well after graduation. Students who wished to sign a pledge, promising to lead a greener lifestyle were able to. They received a reusable grocery bag, refillable water bottle, and t-shirt for the taking the pledge.

    At the end of the day, all 200,000 plastic bottles were collected and recycled properly.

    25 year old spill on up-gradient property1
    Topic posted April 17, 2015 by RARMember in Discussions > Environmental Due Diligence public
    Title:
    25 year old spill on up-gradient property
    Content:

    I am doing a Phase I on a property in which an adjacent property (up-gradient) was recorded as having a 20000 gallon gasoline spill in 1987.  As for remediation, all that was listed was that the tank was pumped out.  My property is also a former gas station site, with tanks removed.  Soil testing performed in area of tank removal in 1991 indicated contamination levels below regulation limits. Additionally, another former gas station is located across the road (down-gradient) and was listed in the LUST database.  An NFR letter was recorded, but I was wondering if vapor intrusion might apply.  All sites are locates within city limits, so water, gas, and sewer lines are present.  Should I identify an RECs here?

     

    Thanks for any opinions.
