Eric, Bob Jurgens and Bill Linn will be meeting in Austin October 29-30 to draft a paper summarizing the results of remedial efforts at the 116 drycleaning sites in the database.

Julie Friddell, of South Carolina DHEC, stated that she is making good progress on compiling a “Compliance Virtual Tour” of a drycleaning site. She is being assisted by Eric Swope of the North Carolina DNR. Julie is still accepting photographs illustrating various compliance issues at drycleaning sites. Julie will present her “Drycleaning Virtual Tour” presentation and discuss the “Compliance Virtual Tour” at the upcoming Fall meeting in Austin.

Data on an additional eighty-eight (88) drycleaning chemical products has recently been entered on the Drycleaning Chemical Data Base on the SCRD website. As available the following data were entered for each product: product name, manufacturer, function or application of each product, chemical contents, and CAS number. With the recent additions, there are now entries for 544 drycleaning chemical products on the website. To access the data, go to http://www.drycleancoalition.org/chemicals/Selectinfo.cfm. The Drycleaning Chemical Database can be searched by product name, specific chemical name or CAS#.

Fall SCRD Meeting

Dick DeZeeuw of Oregon and Cheryl Joseph, NGWA discussed the upcoming Fall SCRD meeting to be held in Austin, Texas from October 29 – November 2. Cheryl noted that anyone who has not made their reservations needs to do so. Cheryl needs to know the arrival and departure times for the members attending the meeting. State updates need to be forwarded to Cheryl. If a state update is not sent to Cheryl prior to the meeting, then 35 copies need to be brought to the meeting for handouts.

Dick DeZeeuw reviewed the draft Fall meeting agenda. Although the agenda has not been finalized, specific presentation titles and panel discussion topics need to be finalized.
