EPA sponsors and participates in various events to help stakeholders understand and use the best management practices of green remediation. Upcoming events include:

Conferences

March 31-April 3, 2019. Sustainable Water Management Conference. Tucson, Arizona. This American Water Works Association conference focuses on presenting solutions for balancing conservation benefits and costs, water resource management, sustainable utilities and infrastructure, urban planning and design, energy efficiency, water conservation, stormwater, and water reuse.

April 15-18, 2019. Fifth International Symposium on Bioremediation and Sustainable Environmental Technologies. Baltimore, Maryland. The Bioremediation Symposium is a forum for sharing research results, practical experiences and opportunities concerning advances in bioremediation and green and sustainable practices in remediation. The development, implementation, use and results of advanced tools for assessment and monitoring, as well as the challenges of applying bioremediation at various types of complex sites, are also examined during this event. Several sessions will focus on treatment technologies for emerging contaminants such as per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS).

April 18-20, 2019. 12th Symposium on Design and Construction Issues at Hazardous Waste Sites. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This annual event focuses on the engineering and science associated with cleaning up hazardous waste sites. Topics at past symposia included adaptive management strategies, optimization case studies and sustainability considerations.

April 29-May 2, 2019. 2019 National Watershed & Stormwater Conference. Charleston, South Carolina. The Center for Watershed Protection sponsors this event as a forum for watershed and stormwater professionals to learn how to increase community resilience to emerging and persistent threats to water resources. Under a 2019 theme of "Build Resiliency in our Watersheds in an Era of Uncertainty," anticipated topics include green infrastructure, water re-use, stressor management, BMP maintenance, and coastal resilience.

May 8-10, 2019. Stormwater and Green Infrastructure Symposium 2019. Fort Lauderdale, Florida. This symposium is held by the Water Environment Federation (WEF) in affiliation with the WEF Stormwater Institute and the National Green Infrastructure Certification Program, in cooperation with the Florida Water Environment Association and The Water Research Foundation. The event is designed to deepen technical knowledge of professionals involved with stormwater management and provide forums for discussing leading issues. Topics include stormwater treatment technologies, construction and maintenance, post-construction control measures, innovative technologies for project planning, and green infrastructure data use.

May 31-June 4, 2020. 2020 Chlorinated Conference. Portland, Oregon. Battelle's International Conference on Remediation of Chlorinated and Recalcitrant Compounds Conference series addresses the application of innovative technologies and approaches for characterization, monitoring and management of chlorinated and complex sites.

Training

April 23, 2019. Long-Term Performance of Biochemical Reactors for Passive Treatment of Mine-Impacted Water. This 1.5-hour CLU-IN webinar sponsored by the U.S. EPA will present an overview on the background, history and principles of using biochemical reactors (BCRs) to treat mine-impacted water. The webinar also will provide a detailed review of the configuration, operation and performance of a typical BCR system, based on data and observations from two long-term (>8 years) operating BCR systems. Other topics will include benefits and limitations; capital and operation-maintenance costs; applicability to other contaminants; and regulatory challenges.

July 29-31, 2019. Best Practices for Site Characterization Throughout the Remediation Process. San Francisco, California. This three-day course offered by the U.S. EPA Office of Superfund Remediation and Technology Innovation is based on the best management practices (BMPs) implemented by EPA partnership organizations, federal and state partners, and consultants. Participants will learn how to streamline projects in a legal, technically sound and cost-effective manner by: integrating the BMPs into traditional project activities; effectively collecting and communicating critical project information; designing dynamic work strategies; addressing challenges while implementing a dynamic work strategy; and using the BMPs to support other phases of the environmental cleanup life cycle such as technology selection, remedial design and remedy implementation.

August 14-15, 2019. Groundwater High-Resolution Site Characterization. Chicago, Illinois. This two-day course offered by the U.S. EPA Office of Superfund Remediation and Technology Innovation helps groundwater investigation and remediation stakeholders improve their subsurface investigation approaches and develop more realistic and comprehensive conceptual site models. The course includes discussion of sources and attributes of subsurface heterogeneity and their impact on hydrogeology, contaminant fate and transport, and source and plume relationships; definition and use of scale-appropriate measurements, adequate data density and collaborative data sets; and tools for subsurface investigations of shallow unconsolidated environments, deep unconsolidated environments, fractured and porous media, and the groundwater and surface water interface.

November 13-14, 2019. Groundwater High-Resolution Site Characterization. Boston, Massachusetts. This two-day course offered by the U.S. EPA Office of Superfund Remediation and Technology Innovation helps groundwater investigation and remediation stakeholders improve their subsurface investigation approaches and develop more realistic and comprehensive conceptual site models. The course includes discussion of sources and attributes of subsurface heterogeneity and their impact on hydrogeology, contaminant fate and transport, and source and plume relationships; definition and use of scale-appropriate measurements, adequate data density and collaborative data sets; and tools for subsurface investigations of shallow unconsolidated environments, deep unconsolidated environments, fractured and porous media, and the groundwater and surface water interface.

December 3-5, 2019. Best Practices for Site Characterization Throughout the Remediation Process. Lenexa, Kansas. This three-day course offered by the U.S. EPA Office of Superfund Remediation and Technology Innovation is based on the best management practices (BMPs) implemented by EPA partnership organizations, federal and state partners, and consultants. Participants will learn how to streamline projects in a legal, technically sound and cost-effective manner by: integrating the BMPs into traditional project activities; effectively collecting and communicating critical project information; designing dynamic work strategies; addressing challenges while implementing a dynamic work strategy; and using the BMPs to support other phases of the environmental cleanup life cycle such as technology selection, remedial design and remedy implementation.
