PFAS Beyond the Airfield

The EPA’s recent promulgation of new Regional Screening Levels (RSLs) for certain per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) profoundly impacts how PFAS will be investigated and remediated at America’s airfields and other locations where foam was used for fire training. These newly promulgated RSLs, future regulations as outlined in the EPA’s PFAS roadmap, combined with recent state legislation, of which Maryland’s recently passed George “Walter” Taylor Act is an example, also have broad impacts beyond the airfield ranging from food packaging, to solid waste management, to waste water treatment. SAME has assembled key stakeholders to discuss the ever changing world of PFAS beyond the airfield.

Join the Baltimore Post, the SAME student Chapter of Morgan State University, and Maryland Assistant Secretary of Environment, Bobbie James, Esq. for this combined industry, government, and academia event.

When: 21 September 2022, 2PM to 5PM 

Where: Morgan State University CBEIS Building, 5201 Perring Parkway, Baltimore, MD 21214

Keynote Speaker: Maryland Assistant Secretary of Environment, Bobbie James, Esq.

Ms. James has been with the Office of the Secretary at MDE since 2020. Prior to joining the OS, Ms. James represented MDE for 14 years as an Assistant Attorney General for the Air and Radiation Administration (ARA), and Deputy Counsel for both ARA and the Land and Material Administration.

Evening at the Ballpark

The Young Member’s of SAME Baltimore and Mid-Maryland Posts hosted an evening at the Bowie Baysox baseball game on September 8.  We were honored to welcome Midshipmen from the U.S. Naval Academy as our guests for the evening.  Also in attendance were Student Members from Morgan State and University of Maryland along with sustaining members and their families from both posts.  Great conversations were had and valuable networking connections were made.  Thanks to all who came out to the event, and we are already looking forward to next year’s game!

Volunteers Needed for Morgan State Student Chapter

The Post is working with a professor at Morgan State University to set up a Student Chapter.  In support of this Student Chapter, we are looking for professional volunteers to mentor students with their senior capstone projects.  We anticipate volunteers will support the students by meeting with them via phone/zoom/teams on occasion to discuss their project and field questions. We are also hoping volunteers will be able to participate in the poster sessions and/or final presentations to interact and ask questions, if available, later this year.  Contact Ivy Harvey or Bob Helkowski to sign up to help!

Join A Committee!

We have a full calendar this year, and the Baltimore Post is currently looking for passionate individuals to lead and participate in our various committees. If you are interested in leading or joining a committee, please contact our Post Secretary, Elaine Guarriello.

We’re Looking for a Few Good Fellows

The SAME Academy of Fellows is a body of SAME members who have rendered dedicated and outstanding service to SAME, to military engineering, to engineering and related professions in general, and to their community.  Being accepted into the College of Fellows is a great distinction.  Somewhat less than 3% of the total SAME membership has been awarded this honor.  However, for members who have shown outstanding achievement and leadership (which includes leadership by example), being accepted into the Academy of Fellows is not an unachievable goal, and the Society is sincere in its desire to ensure that deserving members are granted this recognition.  The selection process is not a competition.
