The Association of Engineering and Environmental Geologist’s (AEG) Carolina Section met on October 25, 2012 at Natty Greene’s Pub & Brewing Company in Greensboro, North Carolina to discuss regulatory compliance pertaining to operating dry-cleaning facilities in North Carolina, the impact of non-compliance to the environment, and the State and Federal regulations that the DSCA Compliance Program staff enforces in North Carolina. The information was presented by Eric Swope, Compliance Supervisor for the North Carolina Dry Cleaning Solvent Cleanup Act (DSCA) Compliance Program. Mr. Swope titled his presentation “The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly: Compliance Practices Impacting the North Carolina DSCA Compliance Program”.
During the presentation’s social hour beforehand, both myself and my son, Evan Chew, presented a monetary donation to Jane Gill-Shaler, member and editor of the AEG newsletter on behalf of Enviro Equipment, Inc. The donation was given to the AEG to assist them in providing AGI Earth Science Kits to the North Carolina Science Teachers’ Association (NCSTA). The kits, which will be distributed to science teachers at their Professional Development Institute (PDI) on November 8-9 at the Boston Convention Center in Winston-Salem, NC. Enviro Equipment, Inc. has provided donations to the AEG in the past to support this worthy cause.
