    Integrating Sustainability into Remediation Projects
    Webinar: presented by Maria Watt, PE; Chris Koerner, PE, BCEE; Teresa Raine

    Sustainable remediation is a critical component of today’s remedial action options. Rising concerns over energy efficiency, climate change, and greenhouse gas emissions are prompting the environmental industry to consider sustainable practices in their decision-making processes. To maximize the net sustainable benefit, effectively manage environmental liabilities, and return sites to beneficial reuse, today’s industry must maintain a delicate balance between cost effectively meeting regulatory obligations and mitigating risk while considering environmental stewardship, social responsibility, and economic growth.

  • Managing Risk from Coal Combustion Product Storage Facilities
    Webinar: presented by John Reichling, Steve Whiteside and Bill Friers

    With the 2008 failure of a surface impoundment in Kingston, Tennessee still fresh on our minds, it's no wonder why some owners are thinking twice about short- and long-term management approaches. Driven in part by this incident, U.S. EPA recently proposed rules for managing coal combustion residuals that could have severe economic implications for the electric utilities industry, leading to discussions on what are some of the technical challenges, obstacles and strategies of coal ash.
