Program details:

We are pleased to announce that John Dunn, with US EPA Region 7, will be our speaker. This is your opportunity to listen, question and talk with one of Region 7’s leading experts.

John will focus on EPA Headquarters’ new regulation that requires controls on cooling water intakes.  The “316(b)” rules require fish-friendly screens with fish returns, but will require biological and engineering studies to decide whether entrainment controls will also be needed.  John Dunn, an engineer with Region 7 EPA, will explain the rule and EPA’s activities in the roll out.
