The Remediation and Redevelopment (RR) program’s popular Consultants’ Day conferences, scheduled for April 30 and May 9, are postponed until next year.
The events were to have taken place in Stevens Point and Pewaukee. The RR Program anticipates that the same locations will be used for the later dates.
RR program staff will be working on several large initiatives this year as part of a continuing effort to ensure efficient and effective guidance and standards for the investigation and remediation of contaminated sites in Wisconsin, such as:
- Revising specific sections of Wis. Admin. Code chs. 700-799 to attain consistency with statutory revisions, including new provisions related to contaminated sediments, and to update and clarify requirements and procedures as needed since the last set of rule revision in 2013. To participate in the rulemaking process, please visit the RR Program’s rule development webpage.
- Implementation of Wisconsin Act 369, which made significant changes to the development and adoption of guidance documents by state agencies. The RR program is responsible for hundreds of guidance documents.
- Holding quarterly external advisory meetings to strategize on technical and policy issues related to PFAS. The first meeting will be held on February 22 from 10am to 2pm in room G27 of DNR’s downtown Madison office. More information, including a meeting agenda, will be available soon. Please RSVP to Mick Skwarok if you plan to attend.
Distance learning opportunities will be scheduled for several topics that were planned for Consultants’ Day. Please watch for a future announcement in the RR Report for a schedule of future events.
Program staff look forward to seeing you at Consultants’ Day events in the future. In the interim, please let us know if there are topics you’d like us to consider for future trainings or if you’d like to schedule a Green Team meeting to discuss a site-specific opportunity.
The program apologizes for any inconvenience this postponement might have caused.
