Taliaferro, Scott Sutliff, and Stephen C. Churchill undertook a presentation titled: Ohio C&DD Facilities Hydrogeologic Evaluation. The authors are employees of the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency.

The presentation focused on Ohio agency's study of C&DD Facilities from a hydrogeologic perspective. The presentation included a review of the state's 1996 study and 2005 revisions to the Ohio C&DD law. The 2005 revisions had revised groundwater monitoring requirements for these facilities. They also added siting criteria.
