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

Conferences

March 25-28, 2018. Sustainable Water Management Conference. Seattle, Washington. Technical presentations and workshops at this four-day conference will address water conservation/cost balancing, water resource management, and related aspects such as sustainable utilities and infrastructure, urban planning and design, energy efficiency, stormwater management, and water reuse. The event is sponsored by the American Water Works in cooperation with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Water Research Foundation, Alliance for Water Efficiency and other organizations.

April 8-12, 2018. Conference on Remediation of Chlorinated and Recalcitrant Compounds. Palm Spring, California. This five-day conference will address the application of innovative technologies and approaches for characterization, monitoring, and management of chlorinated and complex sites. Major themes include green and sustainable remediation, remediation technology innovations, assessment of remediation effectiveness, advanced diagnostic tools, and emerging contaminants.

September 11-13, 2018. 26th National Tanks Conference & Exposition. Louisville, Kentucky. Focus areas for presentations, workshops or posters at this event include leaking underground storage cleanup; innovative approaches such as green remediation; storage of alternative fuels; underground storage tank issues such as leak detection; and use of conceptual site models.

Training

January 30, 2018. Geospatial Analysis for Optimization at Environmental Sites. Optimization activities can improve performance, increase monitoring efficiency, and support contaminated site decisions. Unlike traditional statistical analysis, geospatial methods incorporate the spatial and temporal dependence between nearby data points. This 2.25-hour webinar sponsored by the Interstate Technology & Regulatory Council (ITRC) trains state regulators and other practitioners in the use of geospatial analyses to evaluate optimization opportunities at environmental sites in accordance with the ITRC's associated guidance document (GRO-1).

January 31, 2018. National Stormwater Calculator for Managing Runoff Using Green Infrastructure: Addition of a Cost Module and a Mobile Web App. The U.S. EPA developed the National Stormwater Calculator (SWC) to support local, state and national stormwater management efforts in reducing runoff through green infrastructure practices that promote infiltration and retention. This 1-hour webinar presents the new SWC cost module and mobile web application and provides examples of using the new features. The SWC is designed for use by site developers, landscape architects, urban planners and others interested in reducing runoff from a given property within the United States, including Puerto Rico.

January 30-31, 2018. Groundwater High-Resolution Site Characterization. Tallahassee, Florida. 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.

April 30-May 3, 2018. Best Practices for Site Characterization Throughout the Remediation Process. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. 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.

June 5-6, 2018. Groundwater High-Resolution Site Characterization. Kansas City, Missouri. 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.

August 7-8, 2018. Groundwater High-Resolution Site Characterization. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. 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.
