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

Conferences

October 4-6, 2022. 2022 WaterSmart Innovations Conference. Las Vegas, Nevada. Water supply conditions have become extremely challenging as climate change and drought conditions amplify in the western United States. The Southern Nevada Water Authority is partnering with the American Water Works Association (AWWA) to present this conference focused on implementation of conservation measures and expansion of drought management programs, particularly in the Colorado River Watershed.

December 15-22, 2022. ACES Conference. Crystal City, Virginia. A Community on Ecosystem Services (ACES) represents a dynamic and growing international assembly of professionals, researchers and policy-makers involved with ecosystem services. The ACES Conference brings together this community in partnership with Ecosystem Markets and the Ecosystem Services Partnership (ESP), providing an open forum to share experiences, methods and tools for assessing and incorporating ecosystem services in public and private decisions. The panel sessions and presentations will focus on the following topics: the intersection of climate science, policy and ecosystem services; ecosystem services use in environmental markets, incentive programs and nudges; the role of ecosystem services in traditional and nature-based infrastructure planning and implementation; ecosystem services to support America the Beautiful and other conservation initiatives (including environmental justice, climate change and biodiversity); and the state of ecosystem service science and applications.

January 9-12, 2023. International Conference on the Remediation and Management of Contaminated Sediments. Austin, Texas. The sediments conference series sponsored by Battelle is a forum for sharing research results, practical experiences and opportunities associated with investigating, remediating and restoring the environmental and economic vitality of waterways. Anticipated topics include beneficial use of contaminated sediments, approaches for optimized remedial development, passive sampling, habitat mitigation and restoration, and climate resiliency.

March 5-8, 2023. Water Reuse Symposium. Atlanta, Georgia. The 2023 WateReuse Symposium will bring together water professionals to envision the critical role of water recycling in the future of water management nationwide. Sessions will highlight how diverse communities can benefit from water reuse across the country, including how water recycling is delivering benefits to underserved communities. The Symposium will explore how businesses, industries, and communities can work together to implement water recycling programs to ensure environmental, economic and public health resilience for diverse communities and diverse beneficial uses. This event is sponsored by the WaterReuse trade association in collaboration with The Water Research Foundation.

Training

October 31-November 2, 2022. Best Practices for Site Characterization Throughout the Remediation Process. Seattle, Washington. The U.S. EPA hosts this three-day training course to help site cleanup stakeholders learn how to streamline projects in a legal, technically sound, and cost-effective manner. Topics include systematic project planning; developing dynamic work strategies; implementing a dynamic field investigation; risk assessment and real-time data; and best practices for remedy design and implementation.

November 17, 2022. Sustainable Resilient Remediation. Sustainable resilient remediation is an optimized solution to cleaning up and reusing a hazardous waste site that limits negative environmental impacts, maximizes social and economic benefits, and creates resilience against increasing threats such as extreme weather and wildfire. This 2.25-hour webinar sponsored by the Interstate Technology and Regulatory Council will describe information resources regarding the social and economic dimensions of sustainability; provide a framework illustrating how and why sustainability and resilience should be integrated throughout the remedial project life cycle; offer checklists of key sustainable best management practices to address resilience based on specific vulnerabilities at a site; present interactive maps with links to related state and federal resources; and reference case studies illustrating the application of SRR considerations.

November 17, 2022. Forecasting Dryland Ecosystem Vulnerability to Change. This 1.5-hour webinar is one in a series sponsored by the U.S. Department of Defense's Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) and Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP) to share cutting edge and practical information resulting from SERDP/ESTCP research projects. This webinar features presentations by Dr. Sasha Reed and Dr. Scott Ferrenberg of the U.S. Geological Survey.

December 6-8, 2022. Best Practices for Site Characterization Throughout the Remediation Process. Chicago, Illinois. The U.S. EPA hosts this three-day training course to help site cleanup stakeholders learn how to streamline projects in a legal, technically sound, and cost-effective manner. Topics include systematic project planning; developing dynamic work strategies; implementing a dynamic field investigation; risk assessment and real-time data; and best practices for remedy design and implementation.
