Texas Risk Reduction Program regulations (TRRP; 30 TAC 350) establish consistent risk-based protocols for evaluation and response to soil, groundwater, or surface water contamination associated with an environmental release of hazardous wastes or substances. Since adoption of the TRRP rule, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has established policies and released guidance pertaining to TRRP. Presented by GSI Environmental Inc., with participation of key TCEQ technical staff, this popular and informative training series is a must for professionals who need a working understanding of TRRP and those needing to stay up-to-date with the latest TRRP guidance and policies adopted by the TCEQ.
