Keith Brodock, P.E., P.P., and Craig Hutchings of Integral Consulting Inc. are contributing to guidance documents produced by technical teams of the Interstate Technology & Regulatory Council (ITRC), a state-led coalition working to reduce barriers to the use of innovative environmental technologies and processes.
Mr. Brodock is on the ITRC team “Optimizing In Situ Remediation Performance & Injection Strategies,” which was formed to address the risks, limits, and lack of information on the use of injection-based technologies, and to discuss improvements. The team will meet on September 23, 2019, in Albuquerque, New Mexico to complete guidance for in situ remediation—the chemical and biological treatment methods that can result in successful mitigation of contaminants on site. The goal of this team’s guidance document is to help optimize remediation performance and develop effective in situ strategies.
On October 24, 2019, Craig Hutchings will attend ITRC’s workshop on per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in Tacoma, Washington. A chemist with 25 years of experience on environmental projects, including some involving PFAS, Mr. Hutchings provided comments on a newly developed PFAS fact sheet on site characterization, sampling precautions and laboratory methods. He has also commented on the ITRC’s “Sampling and Analytical Methods” section of the PFAS technical and regulatory guidance document, and is actively assisting the team in preparing the guidance document.
ITRC produces documents and training that broaden and deepen technical knowledge and expedite quality regulatory decision making while protecting human health and the environment.
