Conferences

September 30-October 1, 2019. Grey to Green Conference. Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota. This conference hosted by Green Roofs for Healthy Cities and the Green Infrastructure Foundation focuses on green infrastructure implementation and resilience. The technical sessions and continuing education courses explore the latest science on green infrastructure performance, economic valuation, public policy developments, new technological developments, financing and best practices.

October 29-30, 2019. Grey to Green Conference. Washington, DC. This conference hosted by Green Roofs for Healthy Cities and the Green Infrastructure Foundation focuses on green infrastructure implementation and resilience. The technical sessions and continuing education courses explore the latest science on green infrastructure performance, economic valuation, public policy developments, new technological developments, financing and best practices.

November 4-6, 2019. Design and Construction Issues at Hazardous Waste Sites (DCHWS) — West. Denver, Colorado. The Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) Denver Post is holding the third DCHWS — West Symposium to encourage dialogue and information sharing on design and construction issues relevant to hazardous waste sites in the western United States. This conference is cosponsored by SAME and the U.S. EPA.

December 10-13, 2019. Brownfields 2019. Los Angeles, California. This conference cosponsored by the U.S. EPA and the International City/County Management Association offers technical presentations, training sessions and networking opportunities concerning the cleanup and re-use of formerly utilized commercial and industrial properties. The conference topic areas include sustainability, livability and resiliency; community engagement and environmental justice; and liability and enforcement.

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

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.
