May 04, 2015

CDM Smith proudly sponsored and participated in the successful 8th Symposium on Design and Construction Issues at Hazardous Waste Sites. Held in Philadelphia, Penn., USA, from April 15-17, 2015, the conference facilitated an interactive engagement between 320 government and private-sector professionals about relevant and topical issues affecting the hazardous waste field.

With the applications of engineering and science associated with cleaning up hazardous waste sites rapidly evolving, the Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) and the SAME Philadelphia Post resumed this popular and important forum for environmental professionals.

Throughout the symposium, CDM Smith thought leaders delivered technical presentations and posters, moderated sessions, and shared their views on hazardous waste issues, challenges and opportunities facing industry leaders.
