#2008 - "Radium Sludge Disposal”
Delivered on: 10/19/2009
RTC Hours: 1 Total Hours: 1
Presented by: Peter G. Wallers, P.E., CFM, Engineering Enterprises, Inc.
Many northeastern Illinois communities utilize deep sandstone aquifers as a water supply source. Therefore, many communities are managing radium levels in their source water, and consequently in their water and wastewater treatment plant sludge. The Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA) has recently published a proposed rule for the possession and disposal of radium containing sludge and residuals from sewage and water treatment facilities. Based on the testimony presented at the September 30, 2009 Public Hearing for this rule, it would appear the methodology utilized to establish the parameters in the rule are overly conservative while the overall ramifications of this proposed new rule are not fully understood. This new rule likely will affect many communities’ radium management approaches on both the water and wastewater side, and likely will cause additional expense to many communities and/or agencies providing water and wastewater service. This webinar will provide a summary of the rulemaking process, tools to help assess the impact on a community, and a discussion of the next steps in the rulemaking process.
