An integrated computer modeling system for water resource management
On January 14, EPA and the U.S. Department of Agriculture conducted the first of five planned “train-the-trainer” webinars to train small and rural water and wastewater system professionals to assess their system operations and make improvements in priority areas using the agencies’ Rural and Small Systems Guidebook to Sustainable Utility Management and Workshop in a Box tools. More than 320 participants from 47 states participated in the webinar.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has issued a final rule to create a consistent national framework ensuring the safe and effective deployment of carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) technologies.
CCS technologies allow carbon dioxide to be captured at stationary sources – like coal-fired power plants and large industrial operations – and injected underground for long-term storage in a process called geologic sequestration.

Law Protects New Yorkers and the Environment by Ensuring Proper Handling of Hazardous Mercury
A new law signed by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo will require manufacturers to collect and recycle mercury-containing thermostats at no cost to consumers, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Commissioner Joe Martens announced today. The law implements a statewide thermostat product stewardship program to ensure that hazardous mercury is properly handled, preventing potential adverse health effects and damage to the environment.
