Lila Beckley Awarded ASTM Distinguished Service Award
Lila Beckley was presented with the ASTM Distinguished Service Award at the E50 Committee meeting in October 2016. This committee is responsible for standards on environmental assessment, risk management, and corrective action. The award was given to recognize Lila’s leadership and dedication in the development of E2993-16: Standard Guide for Evaluating Potential Hazard as a Result of Methane in the Vadose Zone. The guide presents a practical approach to evaluating, prioritizing, and addressing potential methane hazards. It is intended for use, for example, when potential methane hazards are suspected to be present based on due diligence or other site evaluations.
