Guidance & Documents

"I refer to ITRC guidance documents on a monthly basis. The documents are always well written and easy to follow. I really like the web-based interactive format of newer guidance. We often share the information we have learned from ITRC resources amongst each other in internal meetings and these meetings spark many productive discussions. These discussions have been valuable in mentoring our junior staff."
                - William Flinchum, P.G., R.S.M., SynTerra Corporation
ITRC publishes and produces guidance documents and training courses that help state environmental agencies and others gain valuable technical knowledge and develop consistent regulatory approaches for reviewing and approving specific technologies. These include technical overviews, case studies, and technical and regulatory guidance documents.

These documents are written and reviewed by teams of environmental professionals, including state and federal environmental regulators, federal agency representatives, industry experts, community stakeholders, and academia. All ITRC documents undergo a rigorous external review, and all external comments and team responses are captured and posted to the team ITRC Connect community. ITRC will consider a lack of response during the 45-day external review period to be an acceptance of the content within the product.
