The report documents the activity of EPA's Control Technology Center (CTC) between October 1988 and September 1989. It discusses the program's history, its growth during fiscal year 1989 (FY89), and its plans for the future. In FY89, the CTC experienced significant growth. It received more than 800 calls for assistance, representing a 50% increase over FY88. More than 1000 requests for documents were filled. To further expand the scope of the CTC, outreach activities were also completed at three EPA regional offices and at least two state agencies. Services provided by the CTC are of three types: telephone HOTLINE calls, direct engineering assistance, and technical guidance. The CTC HOTLINE is a telephone number that state and local agencies can call for easy access to EPA personnel who can provide prompt assistance in a variety of ways including consultation, reference to pertinent literature, and access to EPA technical data and analyses. Direct engineering assistance projects are short term (typically 3 months or less), providing technical assistance to individual state or local agencies without regard to the projects' national utility. They are specific in nature and may not be applicable to problems in other locations. Technical guidance projects are long term (up to a year), broad in scope, and with national application and impact.
