Upcoming Meetings

  • NAAMLP 38th Annual Conference
    September 25-28, 2016 | Bozeman, Montana

    The National Association of Abandoned Mine Land Programs (NAAMLP) is a non-profit organization whose members include 31 states and tribes conducting abandoned mine reclamation programs under the federal Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act of 1977. The theme of their 38th Annual Conference is "Enhancing Communities through Reclamation." The technical sessions will cover a broad spectrum of areas ranging from cultural history of mining to advances in technology and new concepts in abandoned mine land reclamation.

  • Remediation Technologies Symposium 2016 (RemTech™ 2016)
    October 12-14, 2016 | Banff, Canada

    RemTech™ 2016 is a remediation technology transfer event for environmental professionals, encompassing the latest innovations in soil and groundwater remediation.

  • 2016 Design and Construction Issues at Hazardous Waste Sites Symposium
    October 26-27, 2016 | Denver, Colorado

    The Western Edition 2016 Design and Construction Issues at Hazardous Waste Sites Symposium is sponsored by the Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) with possible co-sponsorship by U.S. EPA, The symposium will include presentations on the design and construction issues and challenges associated with hardrock mining sites. Details on registration, sponsorship opportunities and program structure will be available via DCHWS-West@cdmsmith.com in mid-July 2016 and on the symposium website once it is live in August 2016.

    Abstracts are due on Friday August 26. They should be submitted electronically to: DCHWS-West@cdmsmith.com.

    Suggested Abstract Topics: This will be a 2-day event consisting of three panel sessions. While all relevant topics will be considered, the symposium is particularly focused on the following areas:

    • Design and construction issues and challenges associated with addressing hardrock mining sites;
    • Cleanup approaches and challenges associated with remediating large watersheds with contaminated sediments and/or surface water;
    • Remediation experiences and challenges associated with addressing hazardous waste contamination in residential/high traffic environments; and
    • Experiences and challenges executing adaptive site management strategies at hazardous waste sites in the western United States

  • The Mining Lifecycle: Tribal Engagement and Environmental Responsibility
    November 2-4, 2016 | Phoenix, Arizona

    The 2016 Mining Lifecycle Training features modules on exploration and mine planning; mine operations and effective environmental management; mine closure reclamation and addressing environmental risk; and a tour of the Freeport-McMoRan Miami Mine. Seating is limited to 100 participants, with priority going to tribal affiliates; however, registrations may open up to the private sector as the training date approaches.

 CLU-IN Mining Sites Webinar Series

 Workshops on Hardrock Mine Geochemistry and Hydrology

EPA's Region 10, ORD, and OSRTI hosted a three-part workshop series on hardrock mine geochemistry and hydrology in 2013. The goals included enhancing participants' understanding of the key issues regarding water chemistry predictions, identifying potential sources of contamination from mine sites, and describing practices to mitigate or reclaim facilities to protect natural resources. Presenters included experts from EPA Headquarters, Regions, and ORD; the U.S. Geological Survey; and the U.S. Forest Service. The workshops were open to all agencies, tribes, consultants, and the general public, and are now archived and available for streaming. Supplementary materials and resources provided by the instructors are also available for download below.
