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

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.

March 31-April 3, 2019. Sustainable Water Management Conference. Tucson, Arizona. The conference focuses on presenting solutions for balancing conservation benefits and costs, water resource management, sustainable utilities and infrastructure, urban planning and design, energy efficiency, water conservation, stormwater, and water reuse.

April 15-18, 2019. Fifth International Symposium on Bioremediation and Sustainable Environmental Technologies. Baltimore, Maryland. The Bioremediation Symposium is a forum for sharing research results, practical experiences and opportunities concerning advances in bioremediation and green and sustainable practices in remediation. The development, implementation, use and results of advanced tools for assessment and monitoring, as well as the challenges of applying bioremediation at various types of complex sites, are also examined during this event. Several sessions will focus on treatment technologies for emerging contaminants such as per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS).

Training

December 3-6, 2018. Best Practices for Site Characterization Throughout the Remediation Process. Boston, Massachusetts. 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.
