CDM Smith Showcases Remedial Break­throughs at AEHS

October 15, 2019
Join our team of experts at the 2019 Conference on Soils, Sediments, Water and Energy.

AMHERST, Mass. – An accom­plished lineup of CDM Smith remediation scientists and engineers will present their cutting-edge research at this year’s Annual Conference on Soils, Sediments, Water and Energy. Topics include per- and poly­flu­o­roalkyl substances (PFAS), innovative remedial tech­nolo­gies, sustain­abil­ity and resilience.

The conference, held by the Association for the Envi­ron­men­tal Health and Sciences Foundation at the University of Mass­a­chu­setts Amherst each year, has quickly become a critical opportunity for a diverse group of stake­hold­ers to gather and discuss the state of soil, sediment and water remediation. Event organizers expect stake­hold­ers to include federal, state, and municipal regulatory officials, military personnel, industry leaders, envi­ron­men­tal attorneys, scientists, engineers and consultants. 

This is a unique opportunity for researchers and prac­ti­tion­ers to share remedial strategies that can be immediately applied to active project sites. The CDM Smith schedule follows, with links to connect with some of our experts who are scheduled to present.
