Best Management Practices for Site Assessment, Remediation, and Greener Cleanups
Hosted by U.S. EPA
Office of Superfund Remediation and Technology Innovation

The Best Management Practices for Site Assessment, Remediation and Greener Cleanups 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.

This 1-day course is offered in support of the EPA Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response (OSWER) effort to improve the technical competency of Small and Disadvantaged Businesses (SDB) as they compete for environmental cleanup jobs. The course is focused toward Brownfields grant recipients and parties directly involved in managing or executing site assessment and cleanup projects. Participation in the training course may also be of benefit to EPA, federal, tribal, state and private industry technical project managers and stakeholders involved in the development and implementation of hazardous waste site cleanups.

*This course is offered free of charge to all registrants who are confirmed to attend.*
