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

Conferences

July 28-August 1, 2019. EPA Region 6 Stormwater Conference. Denton, Texas. U.S. EPA Region 6 has sponsored this annual event since 2016 in collaboration with the Institute for Sustainable Energy and the Environment, Texas A&M University-Kingsville. The 2019 conference theme is "Responding to Change: dynamic stormwater management in economic, political, and climatic transitions." Anticipated presentation topics include BMPs and stormwater control measures; green infrastructure and low impact development; watershed planning; endangered species protection and invasive species control; and flooding response, recovery, and mitigation. The conference also offers certified inspector of sediment and erosion control (CISEC) training, workshops, and field trips.

August 20-22, 2019. Energy Exchange 2019. Denver, Colorado. This three-day event sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy encompasses nearly 120 training sessions and a trade show open to the public. Under a theme of "be efficient and resilient," the conference's 13 technical tracks include federal agency topics such as resilience project implementation, energy and water management, building optimization essentials, cybersecurity technologies and financing for resilience.

February 10-11, 2020. International Symposium on Potable Reuse. Atlanta, Georgia. The American Water Works Association sponsors this forum to discuss the most important and challenging issues associated with both direct and indirect potable reuse. Anticipated topics include emerging contaminants, monitoring technology, treatment approaches, water resources management and alternative sources.

March 29-April 1, 2020. Sustainable Water Management. Minneapolis, Minnesota. This annual conference organized by the American Water Works Association focuses on resilient and efficient water management. The technical presentations, special sessions and workshops are anticipated to cover topics such as source water protection, water conservation programs and climate change mitigation and adaption.

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. Major themes of the 2020 conference include green and sustainable remediation and advanced diagnostic tools.

Training

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 7, 2019. Going Wild: The Conservation Co-Benefits of Green Infrastructure. This 1.5-hour webinar offered by U.S. EPA will describe how green infrastructure practices are restoring habitat in urban landscapes while improving regional water quality. The webinar case studies will address Lake Union in Washington and the Minneapolis/St. Paul region of Minnesota.

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.
