General Information
Event Name: Best Management Practices for Site Assessment, Site Remediation, and Green Remediation Footprint Reduction
Hosted By: U.S. EPA
Office of Superfund Remediation and Technology Innovation
Event Description:

The Best Management Practices for Site Assessment, Site Remediation, and Green Remediation Footprint Reduction 1-day course is comprised of the following three Best Management Practices (BMP) sessions:

  • BMPs for Site Assessments: These BMPs draw on science and technology advancements and practitioner experience to develop strategies for making site assessments more scientifically-defensible, resource-effective, adaptive to changing project needs, and responsive to stakeholder concerns. Applied to new or active projects, the BMPs can be used to significantly reduce data collection costs, expedite project schedules, enhance stakeholder communication, and improve project and site decision quality.
  • BMPs for Site Remediation: The remediation phase of a project is subject to significant uncertainties and other influences that can effect successful execution. The EPA has evaluated and compiled BMPs used to improve site remediation efforts through design and operation enhancements. This training presents an overview of available remedial technologies, considerations for selecting the appropriate remedy, specific remedial approaches, and BMPs to consider throughout the remediation process.
  • BMPs for Green Remediation Footprint Reduction: Green Remediation is the practice of considering all environmental effects of remedy implementation and incorporating options to minimize the environmental footprint of cleanup actions. This training discusses the EPA’s view of green remediation and the performance of environmental footprint assessments and provides a brief overview of the EPA's "Methodology for Understanding and Reducing a Project's Environmental Footprint" report (visit for additional information).

This course is offered in support of the EPA's Office of Land and Emergency Management (OLEM) effort to improve the technical competency of Small and Disadvantaged Businesses (SDBs) as they compete for environmental cleanup jobs. While the target audience for this course is SDBs, the course content is also beneficial for the EPA, federal, tribal, state, and private industry technical project managers and stakeholders involved in the development and implementation of BMPs to clean up hazardous waste sites.
