Storm Recovery: Do you know what to do with storm debris? New Tools for Responding to Natural Disasters


Tuesday, April 09, 2024
1:00 p.m.– 2:30 p.m. EDT


Virtual via Zoom

Climate change is expected to worsen the frequency, intensity, and impact from extreme weather events, like floods, tornadoes, and ice storms. Natural disasters generally result in significant damage to infrastructure and increase in the amount and types of materials requiring disposal. This can pose a threat or substantial nuisance to human health and environmental if not handled quickly and properly. See the new resources at Michigan.gov/EGLEStormRecovery and register to learn more.

In this webinar, emergency responders, local officials, community planners, and Michigan residents will learn about:

  • The regulations for managing storm debris.
  • EGLE’s authority and Michigan’s process for obtaining an Emergency Solid Waste Disposal Authorization in response to a natural disaster.
  • New online tools to help prepare for and respond to a natural disaster.
