Cleaning Up: Involving Community and Ecology in Remediation Projects

Register.

Wednesday, November 11
1:00 pm – 2:00 pm EDT

At its core, remediation efforts are designed to protect communities from the impacts of historical contamination through cleanup efforts. Land managers and agencies alike are increasingly recognizing the value of incorporating biodiversity and community considerations into both the cleanup itself as well as the end-use of the land. In this webinar you will hear from our expert speaker about selecting these kinds of beneficial outcomes for remediation sites, featuring a case study of a landfill where both community and ecological considerations are being incorporated into the site’s use.

You’ll learn:

  • The kinds of ecological end uses that can be pursued as part of remedial efforts
  • What tools are available to land managers to model potential ecological outcomes and make decisions about the best ones to incorporate into a remediation site
  • How to work with the community to select and implement ecosystem services and beneficial end uses for remediation sites

Who should take this webinar:

  • Land managers wishing to involve the community or incorporate ecological outcomes into the cleanup process or end-use for the land
  • Regional and corporate-level managers who oversee a portfolio of remediation projects
  • Agencies, NGOs and other partners interested in working with companies on remediation projects

Presenter:

  • Leah Sharpe, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
  • Tammy Newcomer-Johnson, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
