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:


January 25-28, 2021. International Conference on Remediation and Management of Contaminated Sediments. Nashville, Tennessee. This Battelle conference is a forum for sharing research results, practical experiences and opportunities associated with investigating, remediating and restoring the environmental and economic vitality of waterways.

March 7-10, 2021. Sustainable Water Management. Charlotte, North Carolina. This four-day event hosted by the American Water Works Association will bring together water sector organizations and professionals to discuss all aspects of resilient and efficient water management. Anticipated topics include water and energy efficiency; sustainable utilities and infrastructure resilience; water conservation programs; climate change mitigation and adaption; and alternative water sources.

March 29-31, 2021. 13th Symposium on Design and Construction Issues at Hazardous Waste Sites. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This annual symposium hosted by the Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) Philadelphia Post and the U.S. EPA facilitates interactive engagement among government and private sector professionals who apply the engineering and science associated with cleaning up hazardous waste sites. Anticipated topics include case studies that demonstrate successful inclusion of sustainability considerations, approaches and results in remedial design (RD) and remedial action (RA) projects or highlight application and impact of redevelopment considerations during RD/RA.

April 27-30, 2021. 2021 National Brownfields Training Conference. Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. This biennial event hosted by the U.S. EPA and the International City/County Management Association gathers together stakeholders focused on cleaning up and reusing formerly utilized commercial and industrial properties. It will offer more than 100 panels, roundtables, presentations and mobile workshops.

June 27-July 1, 2021. 2021 Combined Chlorinated and Bioremediation Conference. Portland, Oregon. Platform sessions topics are anticipated to include green and sustainable remediation best practices and case studies; advanced investigation tools and techniques such as drone use and high-resolution passive sampling; the impact of climate change and sea level rise on remediation sites; and advanced tools for assessment and monitoring.

September 21-23, 2021. 27th National Tanks Conference & Exposition. Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Anticipated topics of the plenary sessions and posters include innovative cleanup technologies and approaches to address leaking underground storage tanks (LUSTs), such as green remediation and high resolution site characterization tools; development of LUST conceptual site models addressing emerging contaminants; and alternative fuels stored in underground storage tanks.

December 13-16, 2021. ACES Conference. Bonita Springs, Florida. The four-day ACES (A Community on Ecosystem Services) conference will bring together the growing international network of researchers, practitioners and policy-makers who are interested in natural systems and their relationships with human well-being. Anticipated topics include land and resource management using ecosystem services; translation of ecosystem function to human health outcomes and valuation; and non-use ecosystem services methods and valuation. The event is organized by the University of Florida's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences.


November 17, 2020. Geospatial Analysis for Optimization at Environmental Sites. 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 and Regulatory Council discusses how geospatial analyses provide additional lines of evidence to inform optimization decision making across project lifecycle stages (release detection, site characterization, remediation, monitoring and closure) of soil, groundwater or sediment remediation projects at different sizes and types of sites.
