Emerging Contaminants Workshop
Hosted by Northwest Environmental Training Center

In this one-day workshop, we will explore the topic of emerging contaminants related to soil and groundwater remediation. Over the past few years, several agencies and organizations have released strategies and recommendations related to emerging contaminants. In general, emerging contaminants are ones for which incomplete toxicity data exists or for which new data has been released. Emerging contaminants could also be from a new source or have a newly recognized exposure pathway or lower detection limit.

This workshop will keep you up-to-date on the topic of emerging contaminants and will give you an understanding of how U.S. agencies such as EPA and DOE are working to develop approaches for dealing with emerging contaminants. We will review U.S. EPA’s recently released Groundwater Remedy Completion Strategy. We will also discuss the chemical and physical properties of emerging contaminants, how these compare to more traditional contaminants, and how these impact the ultimate fate and transport of these chemicals.

Intended Audience:
This course is intended for scientists, engineers, site managers, and policy makers that work in the field of environmental management and/or remediation of contaminated sites. This course will provide students with up-to-date information that will enable them to better understand issues related to emerging contaminants and have an understanding of how government agencies are approaching this topic.
