Calendar of Upcoming Events

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


March 10-13, 2024. WateReuse Symposium. Denver, Colorado. The Annual WateReuse Symposium explores how businesses, industries, and communities can work together to implement water recycling programs to ensure environmental, economic, and public health resilience for diverse communities and beneficial uses. Anticipated topics include industrial reuse opportunities; potable reuse case studies; and environmental mitigation, climate resilience and adaptation. The event is planned by the WateReuse trade association and presented in collaboration with the Water Research Foundation.

April 10-12, 2024. Design and Construction Issues at Hazardous Waste Sites (East). Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Society of American Military Engineers organizes this annual conference to share information about applications of engineering and science associated with cleaning up hazardous waste sites. The conference panels focus on case studies, advances in processes such as remedy optimization, and emerging issues such as PFAS contamination.

June 2-6, 2024. Chlorinated Conference. This 4-day event presented by Battelle provides a forum for the environmental remediation industry, with a focus on innovations and technologies to address chlorinated and recalcitrant compounds in the environment. Presentation topics are anticipated to include case studies on green and sustainable remediation (GSR) best practices and nature-based remediation; GSR metrics and assessment tools; climate resilience; high-resolution site characterization, and remote sensing and unmanned systems for site monitoring and assessments.

January 27-30, 2025. International Conference on the Remediation and Management of Contaminated Sediments. Tampa, Florida. Battelle organizes and presents this forum for sharing research results, practical experiences, and innovative approaches to investigating, remediating, and restoring the environmental and economic vitality of waterways and aquatic systems. The conference program reflects the growing body of knowledge about better ways to manage contaminated sediment systems through state-of-the-science data collection, analysis and visualization and highlights novel approaches in remedy design and implementa.


December 5, 2023. Optimizing Injection Strategies and In situ Remediation Performance. In the interest of developing expedited solutions, many past in situ remediation projects have been executed based on an incomplete understanding of site-specific hydrogeology, geology, and contaminant distribution and mass. At some sites, multiple rounds of in situ injections have been performed but have not advanced the cleanup projects to closure. Better strategies and minimum design standards are required to decrease uncertainty and improve remedy effectiveness. This 2.25-hour webinar sponsored by the Interstate Technology and Regulatory Council (ITRC) discusses related ITRC guidance, Optimizing Injection Strategies and In Situ Remediation Performance (OIS-ISRP-1), that is intended to overcome these challenges and improve the effectiveness of in situ remediation using injected amendments. The guidance also describes specific actions that can be pursued to improve the performance of in situ remediation.
