(360) 407-3780
PIN Code: 470351 #
Agenda:
  1. Additional information from a phone-con between Doug Krapas and Michael Jung, Thermoplastic Division Manager at SWARCO Industries regarding a diarylide-free yellow thermoplastic that has been on the Florida test deck since October 2015.
  2. Arrange for a conference call with SWARCO?
  3. Discuss what we have heard so far and evaluate a path forward:
    1. Perform a pilot study or do nothing and turn over to WA DOT and DES to evaluate?
  4. If we decide to move forward with some study, what might it look like:
    1. Simple evaluation of various products for PCB content using 1668?
    2. More detailed breakdown of product components (i.e.: Hydroseed type study)?
    3. Product performance evaluation…Test Deck?
  5. Next Steps

December 6, 2017 Technical Track Work Group Meeting – Canceled

Technical Track Work Group,

Due to the lack of an available adequate video-conference facility, tomorrow’s TTWG meeting has been canceled.

Stay tuned for distribution of a matrix listing Comp Plan goals, and for each goal: progress during 2017, current/planned activities on each (and by whom, if known), timeline for completion, and (to be blank) Goal for 2018. This worksheet will be a focus of the TTWG on January 3rd.

Thank you for all your hard work in 2017 toward finding and reducing PCBs in the Spokane River system, and Happy Holidays!

November 8, 2017 Technical Track Work Group Meeting

The next meeting of the SRRTTF Task Force and Technical Track Work group is:

Date: Wednesday, November 8, 2017
Time: 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Task Force, based on the time-sensitive need to get a contract in place for the $155,000 in (Washington state) legislative funds needing to be spent by June 30, 2018, the facilitation team recommends expanding the 11/8/17 TTWG meeting to include all SRRTTF voting members that are able to attend.

 The hope is to attain a quorum on the 8th, for at least the first portion of the TTWG meeting to serve as a joint SRRTTF-TTWG session, at which the Task Force would consider approving the basic elements of the contract, as jointly drafted and proposed by ACE and the Department of Ecology.
Task Force members are asked to participate in person at the Department of Ecology or participate by phone, either is acceptable (see meeting information below).
