Training

Drycleaner remediation training

The State Coalition for Remediation of Drycleaners (SCRD) members and and CLU-IN hosted a webinar on June 8, 2011, which presented information from a recently updated guidance document on conducting contamination assessment work at drycleaning sites. RR Program hydrogeologist Terry Evanson was one of four presenters during the on-line training. Watch the webinar and download the PowerPoint Presentation now. [exit DNR]

Key aspects of the updated guidance were presented, including: an overview of the drycleaning process, chemicals used, waste generation and management practices in the drycleaning industry, site reconnaissance, identifying sampling locations and environmental assessment technologies applied to drycleaning facilities. The seminar will help state regulators and practitioners identify likely areas of contamination and more effectively implement investigation approaches at current and former drycleaner facilities.
