Pittsburgh, PA - The Air & Waste Management Association (A&WMA) will hold a series of workshops throughout 2011 to provide environmental professionals with updated information on writing and submitting air quality permits, based on new and revised Clean Air Act regulations.
“Keeping up with permitting guidance related to new air quality regulations and changes to older Clean Air Act directives is currently a job in itself,” said Jeff Muffat, 2011 A&WMA President. “We’ve convened a faculty of nationally recognized A&WMA-member experts on Clean Air Act permitting, and put the information environmental professionals need to know in an approachable, manageable format.”
“Understanding Today’s Clean Air Act Permit Programs” will kick off March 1-2, 2011 at the Intercontinental New Orleans Hotel in New Orleans, LA. New Orleans workshop faculty include: Gary McCutcheon, Principal, RTP Environmental; Ken Weiss, Principal and Managing Partner, Global Air Practice, ERM; Gale Hoffnagle, Senior Vice President and Technical Director, TRC Environmental Corp.; and John Paul, Administrator, Regional Air Pollution Control Agency, Dayton, OH and Co-Chair, National Association of Clean Air Agencies, NSR Committee.
The agenda will offer discussion and hands-on training on permitting under the National Ambient Air Quality Standards, New Source Review, PM2.5, the 8-hour Ozone Standard and the Greenhouse Gas Tailoring Rule. In addition, regional air quality experts will provide information on how changes in the Clean Air Act specifically impact the area surrounding each workshop site.
Additional workshops are in development for Houston, TX in April, the Denver, CO area in May and Seattle, WA in Aug.
