Monthly Engineering Forum Virtual Training
Feb 7, 2024 - Feb 7, 2024
Live Online Class, Internet Based

The Engineering Forum (EF), established in the late 1980s, is a group of engineers and scientists that supports the Superfund and RCRA programs in each of the ten EPA Regional Offices. As one of the EPA Technical Support Project’s (TSP) three technical forums, the EF is a medium for exchanging technical information regarding innovative site cleanup and characterization technologies. Monthly technical talks focus on site-specific engineering problems encountered, alternatives and solutions, and lessons learned. After each presentation, information regarding upcoming events and training are discussed and time for an Open Mic discussion is provided. If you are a Superfund, Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), Brownfields, state or federal environmental professional who is interested in solving technical issues, register for any technical talks listed below that interest you and join the discussion!

Presentations are specifically designed for EPA staff including RPMs, OSCs, Corrective Action Managers, Superfund and Technology Liaisons, Chemists, Biologists, Physical Scientists, and Engineers from within EPA regions, program offices, laboratory system, and headquarters personnel as well as environmental professionals from state agencies, tribes, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, U.S. Dept. of Energy, and other federal agencies of all experience levels. THIS TRAINING IS NOT OPEN TO ACADEMIA, CONTRACTORS, CONSULTANTS OR OTHER PRIVATE ENTITIES.

We will try to meet any special accommodations necessary for our participants as possible if given a minimum of two weeks notice. You will be prompted to indicate if you need any special accommodations upon registering for these events.

*This training is offered free of charge to all registrants who are confirmed to attend. One CLP will be issued for each session attended when you register and log on with the registration link provided to enable your attendance to be confirmed.*

Jonah Munholland from Arcadis will present case studies where TISR®, an innovative technology utilizing renewable energy and low-maintenance borehole heat exchangers (BHEs), has been used to effectively treat environmental contaminants in soil and groundwater. Driven by sustainable energy sources such as solar collection or waste heat capture, TISR® is a closed-loop heating system that leverages thermal conduction and advection to elevate subsurface temperatures by 10 to 20°C above ambient conditions. This controlled temperature increase enhances biological, chemical, and physical processes, resulting in the attenuation, degradation, and removal of contaminants. TISR® not only serves as a sustainable alternative to traditional mass recovery methods like excavation or energy-consuming treatment systems but also complements other remedial technologies like air sparging, biosparging, chemical oxidation, or reductive dichlorination. Join the Engineering Forum call to learn more about this sustainable approach and explore the integration of alternative sustainable heat sources and the synergistic enhancements with existing infrastructure that contribute to ecosystem restoration and reduced operational carbon footprint.

CEC Presents...Superfund Essentials
Feb 20, 2024 - Feb 23, 2024
Live Online Class, Internet Based

The Superfund Essentials webinar series presents essential information for environmental staff with little Superfund experience. The webinar introduces the Superfund program and gives an overview of the statutory and regulatory requirements. The removal and remedial process modules describe the assessment and response process followed by OSCs and RPMs as they address their sites. The webinar closes out by explaining the community involvement program and its role in Superfund and a discussion on enforcement and liability. 

Objectives: After taking the webinar series, the participants will be able to (1) explain the provisions and requirements of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA) and the National Oil and Hazardous Substances Pollution Contingency Plan (NCP), (2) follow the assessment and response process for conducting removal and remedial actions, (3) describe the community involvement program and their part in cleanup actions, and (4) explain the importance of several special topics to the Superfund program.

You are required to attend all four webinars in the series to obtain a certificate of completion.

The schedule of webinars is as follows:

Module 1: Introduction - CERCLA Overview - Statutory and Regulatory Basis (2 hours)
Tuesday, Feb. 20, 2024
1:00 PM to 3:00 PM Eastern

Module 2: Removal Response (2 hours)
Wednesday, Feb. 21, 2024
1:00 PM to 3:00 PM Eastern

Module 3: Remedial Response (2 hours)
Thursday, Feb. 22, 2024
1:00 PM to 3:00 PM Eastern

Module 4: Community Involvement - Special Topics - Wrap Up (2 hours)
Friday, Feb. 23, 2024
1:00 PM to 3:00 PM Eastern

NARPM Presents...Resource Area Meet-n-Greets
Feb 21, 2024 - Feb 21, 2024
Live Online Class, Internet Based

NARPM Presents...Resource Area Meet-n-Greets are monthly half-hour live online sessions hosted by the National Association of Remedial Project Managers (NARPM). The sessions will have presentations from the resource area exhibitors that were present at the NARPM 2023 training program. The goal of these virtual sessions is to spread awareness of services, demo any tools developed, and advertise their teams’ capabilities in supporting Superfund staff.

NARPM Presents...Resource Area Meet-n-Greets is targeted towards any Superfund staff that want to know more about the lines of support that are offered to regional project managers. THIS COURSE IS NOT OPEN TO ACADEMIA, CONSULTANTS, CONTRACTORS, OR ANY PRIVATE ENTITIES.

*There are no costs to attendees.*

A virtual MS Teams meeting with the Technical Review Workgroup (TRW) for Metals and Asbestos'. Learn more about the workgroup from the representatives of the bioavailability, Metals, and Asbestos’ committees. This 30-minute session will be hosted by the National Association of Remedial Project Managers and will allow time for the TRW to introduce their services and the audience to ask questions. Below is some background information on the TRW. Register to learn more!

The Technical Review Workgroup (TRW) for Metals and Asbestos is an inter-office and interagency workgroup composed of the lead, bioavailability and asbestos committees that are convened by the Office of Superfund Remediation and Technology Innovation (OSRTI). Membership is comprised of EPA regional and headquarters personnel. The TRW's goal is to develop, maintain, support, and promote consistent application and improvement of the best science in the field of human health risk assessment for asbestos, metals and bioavailability of soil and soil-like (e.g., floodplains) contaminants at affected sites nationwide.
TRW Roles and Responsibilities

  • Develop new risk assessment tools and guidance for asbestos, metals and bioavailability of soil and soil-like (e.g., floodplains) contaminants.
  • Continuously refine, update and validate existing national technical guidance and tools.
  • Coordinate with and provide technical expertise, consultations and reviews to assist other EPA workgroups and committees with technical support for site risk assessments.
  • Collect, disseminate, and promote state-of-the-art approaches to contaminants risk assessment.
  • Promote and expand the best use of available scientific data for site (remedial or removal) assessments.
  • Communicate to stakeholders, within and outside the Agency, EPA technical application of the best available science concerning risk assessment methods for asbestos, metals and bioavailability of soil contaminants.
