Jeremy Morris Presented on Landfill Post-closure Care in EBC Solid Waste Management Webinar
Jeremy Morris, Ph.D., P.E. (Maryland) presented in EBC Solid Waste Management Webinar: Landfill Post Closure Care, the Gift the Keeps on Giving from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. EST on September 29, 2020.
The webinar will be hosted by the Environmental Business Council (EBC).
Jeremy Morris is a Principal Engineer based in Maryland with more than 20 years of professional experience focused on solid waste management with an emphasis on closure and post-closure performance of waste containment facilities.
The EBC, a nonprofit organization, was established in 1990 by environmental and energy company executives who began meeting on a regular basis to exchange ideas and share experiences. The EBC was the first organization in the U.S. established to support and foster the development of the environmental industry. Its goal is to enhance business and job growth of both established and emerging environmental and energy businesses.
Under the EPA’s 1991 Subtitle D and state regulations landfill owners must conduct post-closure monitoring and maintenance activities at closed landfills and have financial assurance mechanisms to perform the activities for a minimum of 30 years. While there are differences among the various states’ exact requirements, some landfills are nearing 30-years since closure and regulators are intending to require owners to provide post-closure monitoring and maintenance beyond the 30-year minimum period. In addition to dealing with unanticipated events at closed sites, such as excessive subsidence, owners of closed landfills are encountering new requirements to monitor for and assess remedial options for emerging contaminants like PFAS and 1, 4 dioxane. The EBC Solid Waste Management webinar will provide an update on the regulatory and scientific developments surrounding these trends and potential financial implications to becoming an environmentally stable, closed landfill.
