In May 2011, EPA held its annual National Association of Remedial Project Managers (NARPM) training program in Kansas City, MO, and for the fourth year in a row, one of our most attended sessions was on Greener Cleanups (GC). And like last year, we are offering those talks again to an online audience! EPA's definition of GC includes the practice of considering the environmental effects of a remediation strategy (i.e., the remedy selected and the implementation approach) early in the process, and incorporating options to maximize the net environmental benefit of the cleanup action.
Back in August, we offered the first of three webinar sessions on the Footprint Methodology, and this April we will showcase the remaining two webinars. We've got more case studies and maturing policy and guidance that we'd like to share with an online audience. EPA's Technical Support Project, led by the Engineering Forum, will present these on April 17th and 23rd, both from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern. Each 2 hour session will include policy and/or case studies, with time for Q&A along the way.
During this seminar, personnel from EPA Headquarters will present information on GC and contracting as well as regional case studies on Re-Powering America's Land initiative and myths and misconceptions on greening PRP cleanups.
