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

Conferences

December 7-9, 2021. ACES Virtual Roundtable. The three-day ACES (A Community on Ecosystem Services) conference will bring together the growing international network of researchers, practitioners and policymakers who are interested in natural systems and their relationships with human well-being. Anticipated topics include land and resource management using ecosystem services; translation of ecosystem function to human health outcomes and valuation; and non-use ecosystem services methods and valuation. The event is organized by the University of Florida's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences.

December 8-11, 2021. 2021 National Brownfields Training Conference. Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. This biennial event hosted by the U.S. EPA and the International City/County Management Association gathers together stakeholders focused on cleaning up and reusing formerly utilized commercial and industrial properties. It will offer more than 100 panels, roundtables, presentations and mobile workshops.

January 24-27, 2022. Eleventh International Conference on the Remediation and Management of Contaminated Sediments. Nashville, Tennessee. This 4-day conference is sponsored by Battelle. Anticipated topics include evaluation of remediation and restoration sustainability, use of passive samplers, geospatial data evaluation and data visualization, habitat mitigation and restoration, and beneficial use of contaminated sediment.

May 22-26, 2022. Twelfth International Conference on the Remediation of Chlorinated and Recalcitrant Compounds. Palm Springs, California. This 5-day conference is sponsored by Battelle. Anticipated topics include green and sustainable remediation, assessing remediation effectiveness, and advanced diagnostic tools.

September 21-23, 2022. 27th National Tanks Conference & Exposition. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Anticipated topics of the plenary sessions and posters include innovative cleanup technologies and approaches to address leaking underground storage tanks (LUSTs), such as green remediation and high resolution site characterization tools; development of LUST conceptual site models addressing emerging contaminants; and alternative fuels stored in underground storage tanks.

Training

September 29, 2021. Valuing Aquatic Ecosystem Health at a National Scale: Modeling Biological Indicators Across Space/Time. This 1-hour webinar sponsored by the U.S. EPA Office of Research and Development is one in a series intended to share current research activities and results regarding cost-effective, sustainable solutions to complex 21st century water issues. Presenters: EPA's Office of Research and Development and Office of Policy.

October 21, 2021. Sustainable Resilient Remediation. Sustainable resilient remediation (SRR) is an optimized solution to cleaning up and reusing a hazardous waste site that limits negative environmental impacts, maximizes social and economic benefits, and creates resilience against increasing threats. The Interstate Technology & Regulatory Council sponsors this 2.25-hour webinar to provide resources and tools for regulators, stakeholders, consultants and responsible parties to help integrate SRR practices into remediation projects.

October 21, 2021. Advances in Stormwater Monitoring and the Development of Best Management Practices for Treatment. Ms. Marienne Colvin of the Naval Information Warfare Center Pacific and Dr. Richard Luthy of Stanford University will present information on advances in stormwater monitoring and the development of best management practices for treating stormwater. This webinar is one in a series offered by the U.S. DoD Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) and Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP).

October 25-27, 2021. Best Practices for Site Characterization Throughout the Remediation Process. Seattle, Washington. The U.S. EPA hosts this three-day training course to help site cleanup stakeholders learn how to streamline projects in a legal, technically sound, and cost-effective manner. Topics include systematic project planning; developing dynamic work strategies; implementing a dynamic field investigation; risk assessment and real-time data; and best practices for remedy design and implementation.

November 16, 2021. Resilience of Ecosystems in a Changing World. This webinar is sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Office of Research and Development to share current research activities and results related to air pollution sources, air pollutant exposures and associated health and environmental impacts, and reducing air pollution and its risks.

November 16-18, 2021. Best Practices for Site Characterization Throughout the Remediation Process. Chicago, Illinois. The U.S. EPA hosts this three-day training course to help site cleanup stakeholders learn how to streamline projects in a legal, technically sound, and cost-effective manner. Topics include systematic project planning; developing dynamic work strategies; implementing a dynamic field investigation; risk assessment and real-time data; and best practices for remedy design and implementation.

December 7, 2021. Optimizing Injection Strategies and In Situ Remediation Performance. This 2.25-hour webinar sponsored by the Interstate Technology & Regulatory Council will discuss challenges that may impede or limit effectiveness of remedies involving in situ injection of amendments. The webinar also will describe actions that can be taken to improve the performance of in situ remedies, such as refining and evaluating remedial design site characterization data; selecting the correct amendment; choosing delivery methods for site-specific conditions; creating design specifications; conducting performance evaluations; and optimizing underperforming in situ remedies.

July 25-27, 2022. Groundwater High-Resolution Site Characterization. New York, New York. The U.S. EPA hosts this three-day training course to help site cleanup stakeholders improve subsurface investigation approaches and develop more realistic and comprehensive conceptual site models. The course discusses the (1) impacts of subsurface heterogeneity on investigation and cleanup of groundwater and related media, (2) need for scale-appropriate measurements and adequate data density, and (3) tools and strategies available to overcome the impacts of subsurface heterogeneity.
