#2046 - "Overview & Implementation of the Radium Treatment Residual Regulations" IEPA#5407
Delivered on: 7/26/2011
RTC Hours: 1 Total Hours: 1
Presented by: Gary Forsee, Illinois Emergency Management Agency
The US Environmental Protection Agency finalized the drinking water standards for radionuclide removal in 2000. In December 2003, the regulations became effective and communities were mandated to meet the 5 picoCurie per liter (pCi/L) combined radium limit. As radium is removed from the raw water, and manifests itself either in the drinking water treatment media, or at a wastewater treatment facility, the management of these treatment residuals is the subject of new regulations promulgated by the Illinois Emergency Management Agency. This presentation seeks to provided a brief background to the genesis of the rulemaking, the main provisions of 32 Illinois Administrative Code 330.40(d), and how the Illinois Emergency Management Agency is seeking to implement this rule in a practical and efficient manner while providing adequate oversight for the disposal of radium. The presentation will discuss treatment technologies seen to concentrate radium as well as case studies of concentrations observed, requirements for landfilling, land application, field sampling, and annual reporting.
