Monthly Engineering Forum Virtual Training
Jun 5, 2024 - Jun 5, 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.*

The Tower Chemical Co. Superfund Site has had multiple actions taken over many years. However, actions to address contamination in the deep subsurface and attempts to restore the Floridan aquifer to beneficial use have been unsuccessful. A 2019 Record of Decision Amendment selected In Situ Stabilization (ISS) to treat the center mass of contamination in the subsurface. Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) funding provided the opportunity to complete the Remedial Action (RA). Join the Engineering Forum call to hear from R4’s Rob Pope about the process to initiate this RA and the progress of site cleanup from 2022 to 2024.

CEC Presents...Superfund Essentials
Jun 24, 2024 - Jun 27, 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)
Monday, June 24, 2024
1:00 PM to 3:00 PM Eastern

Module 2: Removal Response (2 hours)
Tuesday, June 25, 2024
1:00 PM to 3:00 PM Eastern

Module 3: Remedial Response (2 hours)
Wednesday, June 26, 2024

Remedial Process Training
Jun 25, 2024 - Jun 27, 2024
Dallas, TX

Remedial Process Training is a beginner-level training course that provides a comprehensive examination of the technical and regulatory issues that Remedial Project Managers (RPMs) must address as they coordinate, direct and review remedial response efforts at Superfund sites. By taking the course, participants will be better able to:

  • Plan and implement remedial response activities at Superfund sites using effective methods. The course discusses risk management, smart scoping, remedial technologies, applicable or relevant and appropriate requirements (ARARs), Superfund decision documents, remedial design and remedial action (RD/RA), and community involvement.
  • Identify and incorporate the various regulatory and policy aspects of the Superfund program. The course reviews requirements for all phases of the remedial process including RI/FS, remedy selection, RD/RA, operation and maintenance, site close out, five-year reviews, and remedy optimization.
  • Integrate community involvement activities into the remedial process. The course discusses the principles of community involvement, the role of community involvement plans, and various methods of dealing with problems related to community involvement, including conflict management and effective negotiation.
  • Practice applying the concepts covered during the course. Participants take part in a series of exercises that gives them the opportunity to apply their newly acquired skills and knowledge to a hypothetical site, reflecting the real-life experience of RPMs working in the Superfund program.

The Remedial Process Training course is comprised of four webinars and three days of in-person instruction. The webinars help participants develop a baseline understanding of the remedial process and the in-person instruction builds on this baseline with activities and group exercises. The course is designed for RPMs and other environmental professionals who have one to three years of experience in the Superfund program and who are responsible for or need to know about remedial response activities under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA). The Fundamentals of Superfund course is a prerequisite for EPA employees who would like to attend the Remedial Process course.
