PFAS Action of 2019

2019-01-28T15:30:14+00:00

PFAS Action of 2019

Environmental response is at the forefront as the 116th Congress gets underway in our nation’s capital. Earlier this month, Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (D-MI) introduced a bill that will require the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency to designate per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances as hazardous substances. Dingell was recently appointed to a seat on the Health Subcommittee on the House Committee on Energy and Commerce.

This act may be cited as the PFAS Action Act of 2019. It specifies that the administrator of the EPA shall designate per-and polyfluoroalkyl as hazardous substances under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980.

“PFAS contamination is an environmental matter of growing concern for our clients. The PFAS Action Act of 2019 would not only classify PFAS as hazardous substances under CERCLA, it would also generate a flurry of activity by the regulators and the regulated community alike as the industry grapples with how PFAS should be assessed and remediated,” said James Hogan, President of The ELAM Group.

According to the Act, the administrator of the EPA shall designate all PFAS as hazardous within one year of its enactment. The bill can be found here:

The ELAM Group is headed to Ball State!

The ELAM Group is headed to Ball State!

Next month the Ball State Geology Job Fair will once again take place and The ELAM Group will be there to not only tell its story but also to perhaps seek out the next team member as the best and the brightest from BSU meet The ELAM Group to discuss careers in Environmental Science.

Recently the researchers of one online University wrote about the varied nature of careers in environmental science. Knowing what is available to you professionally is half the battle when choosing a career.

And they continued:  Environmental Consultants may have the best of many worlds, setting their own schedules, seeking clients that need their particular form of expertise, and setting their own blend of ideal field work and intellectual work schedule.

So, in February, look for Team ELAM in Muncie!  We look forward to speaking with the students, faculty and staff at Ball State University, hoping the next great Environmental Scientist is ready to roll up their sleeves and go to work – whenever and wherever the job takes them!

Wil Hampton joins The ELAM Group in Noblesville

2018-08-24T20:53:03+00:00

Wil Hampton has never been a stranger to embracing a new challenge and his latest move has him taking a job with The ELAM Group in Noblesville, Indiana.

The ELAM Group, which is short for The Environmental Liability & Asset Management Group, is a consulting firm that specializes in environmental due diligence, litigation support and contracting throughout Indiana and beyond.

“Wil is a terrific person,” said James Hogan, President and CEO of The ELAM Group, “and I am confident that our clients all across the nation will embrace Wil’s witty humor and business perspective as he conveys our message that ethics, logic and emotion drive our successful environmental practice.”

Locally, Hampton is also the District 4 representative on the Noblesville Common Council and a longtime Noblesville resident. He believes the time is right for this type of move. “First off, The ELAM Group is a growing business headquartered in the heart of District 4. My commute time went from about 45 minutes to four,” Hampton said with a smile, “but in all seriousness, this is a win-win because I get to stay close to home and work with a growing local business where environmental issues are part of the daily conversation.”

The ELAM Group office is located in the historic Federal Hill School building at the corner of Logan and Lakeview. Hampton began his new job on April 23, 2018. Wil and his wife Becky have three children and live in Noblesville.

Returning Friday afternoon, Mr. Hogan and Mr. LaFollette accompanied by ELAM’s Angela Watts took OLG’s 3rd grade class on a field trip to the White River in order to give real life examples of what was discussed earlier in the day.  Eager students were quick to point out exciting geologic features such as flood plains, terraces, sand bars, terraces, undercut banks, backswamps, and even landslides!
