This conference will feature case studies highlighting areas of recent and significant changes in Michigan’s regulatory framework.  These changes have created opportunities for promoting cost effective remediation solutions and managing risks using sound science and mechanisms to promote the protection of human health.

The areas highlighted in the conference include Groundwater/Surface Water Interface, Vapor Intrusion, Land and Resource Use Restrictions, and No Further Action/Technical Highlights.   Case studies will be presented in four concurrent tracks on each of these topics offering attendees the opportunity to select sessions based on interest in a specific topic or site.  Each conference date will offer some variation in content featuring sites from the region where the conference is located.

The case studies will feature real sites and real site conditions highlighting the partnership between DEQ staff and consultants and/or owners in working to achieve environmental remediation or risk management objectives at sites.

This conference is not one to be missed.  It provides examples of real strategies for solving omplicated problems associated with managing risks and addressing releases of hazardous substances.

Who should attend?
 The conference presentations will be beneficial for state and local government agencies; environmental consultants, attorneys, and practitioners; federal and tribal agencies; owners and operators of contaminated properties; and environmental organizations.
