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:

Conferences

May 19-23, 2019. National Association of Environmental Professionals. The 2019 theme of this annual conference for environmental professionals is "The Environmental Landscape in the Age of Infrastructure Modernization." Platform sessions will address infrastructure topics such as water management, stormwater management, climate resiliency, ecological restoration and living shorelines.

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.

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.

Training

June 20, 2019. Developing Adaptation Strategies to Address Climate Change and Uncertainty. This 1.5-hour webinar is one in a series sponsored by SERDP and ESTCP to promote the transfer of innovative, cost-effective and sustainable solutions developed through projects funded in five program areas. The webinar includes presentations by Dr. Yonas Demissie of Washington State University and Dr. Mark Wigmosta of Pacific Northwest National Laboratory as well as an interactive Q&A session.

June 25, 2019. Using Effective Water Management to Build Resilience. The Federal Energy Management Program offers this 1.5-hour webinar addressing aspects of an ideal water program that provides the capability to withstand, adapt and recover from a disaster as well as utilize a diversity of solutions to drive down water consumption and ensure long-term water availability. Topics include best practices and alternative water sources.

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 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.
