RCRA Requirements for Hazardous Waste Land-Based Units Webinar
Thursday, April 16, 2020, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM CST
Category: Webinars

Cynthia Palomares, P.G., P.E., AEG President (2019-2020)

The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) was passed by Congress in 1976 to regulate hazardous waste from its development to its disposal.  RCRA requires that all hazardous waste disposed of in land-based units must meet certain criteria to ensure protection of human health and the environment.  Land-based units that manage hazardous waste may include landfills, surface impoundments, waste piles, and land-treatment units.  Requirements for land-based units include criteria for siting, design, operation, and closure.  In addition, hazardous waste must be treated to meet certain standards before disposal in land-based units.  As discussed in this case study, proper siting, design, and operating standards for a hazardous waste landfill in Texas will help ensure protection of human health and the environment.

The session will be available online from noon-1 p.m. CT to the first 500 participants to log in. Time will be available following the presentation for Q&A.
