This seminar is based on best business and technical practices implemented by the U.S. EPA, regulated partnership organizations, and consultants involved in the Triad community of practice over the past 25 years.

This seminar will introduce buyers, sellers, site owners and their support staff, insurance brokers, regulators, and members of the public to the basic elements of a well structured project, which makes maximum use of modern technologies and approaches. This one and a half hour seminar targets managing professionals and non-technical staff. During the seminar students will gain an understanding of processes used in the environmental industry and enhancements that can improve project performance. ÒHow toÓ examples for improving the performance of a project during setup, site characterization, and remediation/reuse will be provided along with resources to facilitate managers as they attempt to refine the way they do business relative to bringing a contaminated site back into constructive use.
