OPENING REMARKS
The Drycleaning Virtual tour has been posted on the web SCRD web site. Bill Linn expressed his thanks to Judie Friddell for the great job in putting this presentation together. He also thanked South Carolina, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oregon, Wisconsin, and Tennessee for contributing photos and review comments for the presentation. A similar presentation is being planned for compliance and waste management practices. Bill asked that any state with pictures of drycleaning practices (both good and bad) be sent to Judie Friddell.

Rich Steimle indicated that the NGWA would be coordinating the next SCRD meeting but that the group may want to consider planning for a meeting later in the summer or fall. Dick DeZeeuw suggested that Bill Linn send out an e-mail to the states to find out when might be the best time to schedule the next meeting. Bill agreed to send an e-mail out.

There was a question as to weather any training might be offered during the next SCRD meeting through NGWA. Rich Steimle stated that NGWA could provide training for the next meeting.

NEW BUSINESS AND MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS
Bill Linn stated that it is time to start thinking about a new Chairperson. He recommended anyone interested put together a summary "Why I'd like to be Chairperson of SCRD" and send it out to the members. Anyone interested in this task is welcome to talk to Bill about the responsibilities and duties. Bill also indicated that persons interested may also want to contact previous Chairmen.

Bill indicated that Florida had reached a milestone with 100 drycleaning site closures. Bob Jurgens asked about the status of Florida closures - Do these sites also have no further action? Bill Linn explained that the FL program had to either achieve cleanup target levels after an assessment, monitoring or active remediation. Institutional controls were an option but had not been used yet. The Florida program cannot impose site controls on any property owner that does not agree to the controls. These discussions lead to the idea for a table or paper on how the various states obtain site closures.

Bill Linn read an article from the April issue of the National Clothesline on EPA's proposed revision of its clean air rules. In comments to the EPA, the New York Department of Environmental Conservation recommended that EPA develop three levels of PCE regulation for drycleaners, one for mixed use residential facilities (drycleaners co-located with residents), one for mixed use commercial facilities (drycleaners co-located with other businesses) and one for stand-alone buildings. ...

Dick Dezeeuw indicated that his state is using grant monies from EPA to distribute halogen leak detectors and provide training on how to use the detectors to drycleaners. The Florida Drycleaning Solvent Cleanup Program has recently ceased using oxygen curtain remedial technology at a drycleaning site. This is the second time this technology has been implemented at a Florida drycleaning site. The data should be in soon for this second site and a site profile will be compiled and posted on the SCRD website to share the site data.

Nancy Boisvert indicated that Tenn. had implemented permanganate injections at numerous sites and that they were going to begin evaluating and reviewing the data. Tennessee also had completed bio-enhancement at several sites and this data was going to be evaluated as well. Bill Linn suggested that the information may be a good topic to discuss at the next meeting. He also reminded members that all attending states at the next meeting would be required to make at least 1 presentation, exclusive of their state report.

Call participants scheduled the next teleconferences for June 22nd and August 3rd, 2006.
