About The USWAG Decommissioning Facility Membership
The USWAG Decommissioning Facility Membership (DFM) is open to companies that purchase a utility site which has been engaged in the generation/production, transmission, or distribution of electricity, natural gas, or other energy sources, for purposes of decommissioning the site, including, but not limited to brownfield development, closing and/or conducting corrective action for CCR units, and recovering CCR for beneficial use.
The benefits of USWAG Decommissioning Facility Membership include:
Access to regulatory updates and summaries
Access to online compliance and training webinars and resources
Access to Technical Committee webpages providing relevant information and resources
Opportunity to attend in-person and virtual Technical Committee meetings
Opportunity to attend in-person and virtual workshops at the same rate as full members
Opportunity to obtain member counseling (consistent with the USWAG "one-hour" member counseling limit)
The limitation of USWAG DFM include:
DFMs would be a distinct category of membership and would not be allocated a vote for any issue requiring USWAG member action or approval.
DFMs could have representatives on the relevant USWAG technical committees but would not have a representative on the USWAG Policy Committee.
USWAG information provided to DFMs would be for the sole purpose of the environmental operations at the identified utility site at which the DFM has purchased for purposes of decommissioning
DFM dues would be based on a per-site acreage formula:
| Up to 250
| 250 - 500
| 500 - 1000
| 1000 - 2000
| 2000 - 3000
| 3000 - 4000
