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

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.

February 11-14, 2019. Tenth International Conference on Remediation and Management of Contaminated Sediments. New Orleans, Louisiana. The "Sediments Conference" series organized by Battelle is a forum for sharing research results, practical experiences and opportunities associated with investigating, remediating and restoring waterways. Topics will address a wide range of environmental, economic, political and social issues.

Training

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.
