Wisconsin DNR staff will play a role in a multi-state remediation and redevelopment conference planned for later this fall in Michigan.
The Great Lakes Environmental Remediation and Redevelopment Conference will be held October 16-18 at the Lansing Center in Lansing, Michigan.
The conference is designed to promote the sharing of knowledge surrounding key issues that confront environmental professionals every day. Five main tracks will engage attendees in topics such as remediation, emerging contaminants, program implementation and performance, redevelopment, and region-wide interest topics. Participants will learn about management methods, successful solutions, and best practices.
From the DNR’s Remediation and Redevelopment (RR) program, Jennifer Borski (Vapor Intrusion Team Leader) will present: Vapor Intrusion: Regulation, Guidance, Audit and partnerships – Wisconsin’s Perspective.
Michael Prager (Land Recycling Team Leader) will speak as part of a Region 5 states brownfields panel.
Judy Fassbender (Chief, Complex Projects and Technical Resources Section) will lead a discussion on Urban PAH Soil Study and Reassessment of Soil Standards in Wisconsin.
Stakeholders from Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Wisconsin, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region V, and the 35 federally recognized Tribes will share perspectives and lessons learned during this comprehensive conference.
Event organizers plan to have attendee registration open sometime in August.
