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:


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.

April 1-3, 2020. 13th Symposium on Design and Construction Issues at Hazardous Waste Sites. This annual symposium hosted by the Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) Philadelphia Post and the U.S. EPA facilitates interactive engagement among government and private sector professionals who apply the engineering and science associated with cleaning up hazardous waste sites. Anticipated topics include case studies that demonstrate successful inclusion of sustainability considerations, approaches and results in remedial design (RD) and remedial action (RA) projects or highlight application and impact of redevelopment considerations during RD/RA.

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.

August 2-7, 2020. Ecological Society of America (ESA) Annual Meeting. Salt Lake City, Utah. The 105th annual ESA meeting will focus on novel and integrative approaches to harnessing the big and diverse data sources now available to address pressing issues in ecology. Information sources such as remote sensing platforms, automated sensors, observatory networks, molecular techniques, large-scale or replicated experiments and predictive (simulation) models are generating enormous amounts of data over time and/or across space. This information deluge creates challenges in terms of the methods available for harnessing the information contained in such data and the tools for effectively communicating big data issues and results.

September 22-24, 2020. 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.

January 25-28, 2021. International Conference on Remediation and Management of Contaminated Sediments. Nashville, Tennessee. This Battelle conference is a forum for sharing research results, practical experiences and opportunities associated with investigating, remediating and restoring the environmental and economic vitality of waterways.

May 17-20, 2021. International Symposium on Bioremediation and Sustainable Environmental Technologies. Miami, Florida. This Battelle symposium is a forum for sharing research results, practical experiences and opportunities associated with advances in bioremediation and green and sustainable practices in remediation; the development, implementation, use and results of advanced tools for assessment and monitoring; and the challenges of applying bioremediation at various types of complex sites.


March 24, 2020. Superfund Redevelopment Roundtable Webinar Series: Session 2. The second part of this two-part U.S. EPA webinar series aims to help developers and local governments redevelop Superfund sites and put them back into productive use. The webinar will provide information on the best practices and lessons learned from developers and local governments who have gone through the process, the available resources and support, and the latest tools and guidance. It also will provide an opportunity for participants to share thoughts and experiences on how the U.S. EPA can better support reuse of sites.
