On September 28, 2016, EPA engineer Paul Lemieux presented on how I-WASTE is used in response to events of local, regional or national significance. EPA’s I-WASTE is a web-based decision support tool that organizes information related to managing waste resulting from natural disasters, terrorist attacks, or animal health emergencies. Examples for I-WASTE use include helping to facilitate management of debris and waste from floods in the Midwestern U.S. states, locating information on disposal of household hazardous waste that came from the San Diego County, California wildfires, and obtaining waste management information from a New York City residence anthrax contamination cleanup as well as an anthrax contamination incident in Connecticut.You may need a PDF reader to view some of the files on this page.
