Toxics Release Inventory (TRI) Chemicals Reporting Change

At Wenck, we make it our duty to stay current on the latest technical details, regulations, and movements across all our market areas. As your partner and advocate, we are behind the scenes, managing the risk for you with economic efficiency in mind. With a passion for air, water, waste, land/natural resources, and infrastructure, we utilize our discrete expertise to ensure your organization is operational and thriving. For this reason, Wenck would like to notify you of the following active regulatory changes that could affect your facility if you are subject to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Toxic Release Inventory (TRI) reporting (commonly referred to as “SARA 313”) for Reporting Year 2017.

Drone (sUAS) Technology offers Better Land Surveying, GIS Solutions

Wenck is leading the industry through our integration of aerial imagery obtained by small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS), commonly referred to as drones. Drone photography provides us with high resolution aerial images of many of our project sites which in the past would have required a photogrammetry company to fly the site with a full size fixed wing aircraft. The portability, ease of use, flexibility, and accessibility of drone hardware provides better imagery at a small fraction of the cost when compared to legacy photogrammetry methods.

What’s Yours is Mine: American Nuclear Tailings Reclamation

Wyoming has the largest reserves of uranium in the United States. Significant uranium deposits were first discovered in the early 1950’s following a post war boom driven by the formation of the Atomic Energy Commission (AEC). Commercial open-pit mining really took hold in the mid-1950s, leading to underground and open pit mining in the 1960’s and 1970’s, followed by heap leach extraction and in-situ recovery (ISR) dominating the extraction method in the 1990’s and current. During the 1950s through 1970’s, some of the most productive mines were located in the Gas Hills of eastern Fremont County, about 70 miles west of Casper and 50 miles east of Riverton, Wyoming. As with most extractive operations, uranium mining in Wyoming went through “boom and bust” cycles leaving ghost towns and abandoned mines in its wake. As part of the uranium industry, uranium mills and mill processing were part of the landscape. Whereas the State of Wyoming regulated mining, the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) regulated uranium processing and mill tailings.
