First Speaker: Vrushali Gandhi, Virginia DEQ
Topic: Virginia Unified Risk Assessment Model (VURAM) Unleashed
Summary: The Virginia Unified Risk Assessment Model (VURAM) is a risk assessment tool developed and maintained by VA DEQ to conduct quantitative human health risk assessments. This presentation will include a demo of the software and how to interpret the results. We will further discuss how its application could be useful for regulators, consultants and various other stakeholders.

Second Speaker: Diana Marquez, Project Manager with Burns & McDonnell
Topic: Risk Assessment and Decision-Making in Corrective Action
Summary: Risk management is one of the most challenging parts of a corrective action project. Effective risk management requires understanding a variety of considerations including the technical complexities of a site, risk drivers, and stakeholder concerns. In this presentation, we will discuss 1) Current frequently-used approaches to risk management; 2) Strengths and weaknesses of the frequently-used approaches; and 3) Alternative ways of approaching risk management to achieve the same goals.

Inspecting Permitted Facilities & Following Permit Conditions

Speaker Bio
The Corrective Action and Permitting Task Force within ASTSWMO’s Hazardous Waste Subcommittee is hosting a webinar on Inspecting Permitted Facilities & Following Permit Conditions. It is critical that RCRA Permit Writers and Inspectors work together to ensure permitted Treatment, Storage, and Disposal Facilities are following the requirements of their permits. This webinar will discuss how permit writers can prepare for Compliance Evaluation Inspections and the types of hazardous waste storage units they might encounter. The presentation will mostly focus on tanks and containers, but will also discuss other topics including treatment and corrective action. Permit Writers and Inspectors working together make for more thorough inspections, more accurate permits, and hopefully safer and more compliant Treatment, Storage and Disposal Facilities (TSDFs). There will be time following the presentation for questions.
