Thanks, TCEQ, for a great conference

Over 4,000 environmental professionals gathered at the Austin Convention Center May 3-4, 2016 for the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) Environmental Trade Fair and Conference. McCoy was there, too, and we enjoyed meeting everyone who stopped by our booth and those we chatted with at the technical sessions. If you missed anything, access many of the presentations here.

On September 8, 2011, EPA was petitioned to revise the definition of corrosivity due to adverse health effects suffered by first responders and others from the dust generated during the collapse of the World Trade Center towers in 2001.

Riverwalk RCRA

McCoy is heading south to the Hilton Palacio del Rio hotel in San Antonio, Texas. We’ll be there July 18-22, 2016 for a 5-day RCRA seminar. Our hotel opens up to the city’s famous River Walk, a scenic area for a stroll or quick bite to eat before or after your daily RCRA download. Walk or take a river taxi to explore attractions or shops further along the river. We hope to see you there.
