EPA Regions 5, 7, Plan SPCC Regulation Seminar

U.S. Environmental Protection Regions 5 and 7 are planning a satellite broadcast of the Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure Regulation Seminar, scheduled for Jan. 13, 2009. The Web site, www.k-state.tv/epa/, accommodates three types of registrations (online, fax, or mail), provides seminar handouts available for printing; offers additional program specific materials for users, and provides certificates for attendees.

For the second year in a row, Regions 5 and 7 are co-hosting a four-hour seminar, which will broadcast via satellite to 33 locations throughout the two regions. In addition, this year the seminar may also be viewed over the Dish Network or via a high-speed Internet connection.

The seminar will cover topics such as SPCC Plan basics, Integrity Testing, Applicability, Secondary Containment, the SPCC Rule Amendments (signed Nov. 20, 2008) and a one-hour question and answer session.
