Environmental Daily Advisor Week in Review--August 12, 2013, to August 16, 2013

Last week, the Environmental Daily Advisor discussed listed training, the EPA/Corps draft water guidance, and oil spill reporting.

Here's the Environmental Daily Advisor week in review.

Good Classroom Training--There are lots of choices for training your workers. Here's some help to determine which methods to use and when to use them.

You Can Make Your Training More Interesting--Training workers only works if attendees retain the information. There are many ways that you can break up training sessions and keep trainees interested.

U.S. Waters Guidance Still on Hold--Senate Republicans have reintroduced a bill (Preserve the Waters of the United States Act, S. 1006) that would prohibit the EPA and the Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) from finalizing a jointly issued draft guidance.

Bill Halts Guidance on ‘Federally Regulated Waters’--The freshly introduced bill--Preserve the Waters of the United States Act, S. 1006--would also prohibit the agencies from using the guidance or any “substantially similar guidance” as the basis for any final rule.

Property Owner Failed to Report Oil Spill--In addition to reporting an oil spill to the federal government, did you know that you also have to report a spill to your state. The Massachusetts DEP (MassDEP) penalized a Boston property owner $25,000 for failing to report a 275-gallon (gal) release of diesel fuel in 2012.
