Description

Hazardous Substances in Groundwater, Soil, & Vapors: The New Turning Point

Registration is OPEN!

This 9th workshop in the series of annual training events hosted by the AIPG Michigan Section focuses on providing quality technical information and case studies. These environmental workshops bring together a broad base of topic expertise from consulting, regulatory, academic, and owner perspectives. This unique workshop forum promotes collaboration for solving tough environmental problems through real site case studies as valuable technical learning tools to develop strategies for evaluating and managing risks associated with releases of hazardous substances to the environment.

The theme for this year’s Environmental Risk Management Workshop is Hazardous Substances in Groundwater, Soil, & Vapors: The New Turning Point. Advances in science and technology along with the
discovery of new contaminants has changed the way we investigate, remediate and manage risks from hazardous substances released to the environment. We are at a turning point in the environmental industry. In some situations, science and technology have resulted in greater accuracy and efficiency; in others, the advances raise more questions than answers; and as we are discovering, new situations where the science and technology are non-existant.

Hazardous substances volatilizing to indoor air from contaminated soil and groundwater is at the forefront of concern across the nation. In the past decade, we have learned more about these invisible threats and means for managing the risks associated with them. AIPG is dedicating an entire track at this year’s workshop to vapor intrusion, requesting demonstration oriented presentations with opportunities for workshop attendee participation.

Demonstrations featuring investigative, sampling, and analytical techniques are being requested. In addition to the discovery, investigation, remediation, and management of vapors, the Michigan Section is also seeking abstracts for innovative and collaborative approaches to addressing and managing risks from contaminants in all media in case-study format.

The presentations in the 1st track at this workshop will feature the many aspects of the volatilization to indoor air pathway (VIAP) including investigation, sampling, analytical, and mitigation methodologies. The 2nd track will focus on innovative approaches to evaluating the risks, characterizing the contaminants, communicating the risks, and management and remediation strategies in all media. This workshop will provide thoughtprovoking,
high quality technical presentations and discussions that have come to be expected of the AIPG Michigan Section’s annual workshop.

As professionals working in the environmental industry sharing the latest information on the advances in the science as well as the regulatory requirements and other legal issues, we can make better, informed decisions regarding the risks associated with these substances in the environment.

Hey Students!

The AIPG Michigan Section for the first time is calling for student posters for the 9th Annual AIPG Michigan Workshop to be held June 11-12, 2019, at the Ralph A MacMullan Conference Center on Higgins Lake in
Roscommon, Michigan.

For this 9th workshop in the series of annual training events, the AIPG Michigan Section is extending an invitation to students to participate in the workshop by bringing a poster highlighting their research and interests in the environmental field. We are dedicating an entire segment of the workshop as a student poster session to give students the opportunity to t alk with professionals about their interests.

The AIPG Michigan Section offers a unique workshop forum that promotes collaboration for solving tough environmental problems. We are inviting students to attend and learn along with our practitioners in the field to share the innovative approaches and encourage more innovation with fresh perspectives on problems. The workshop is an excellent opportunity for exchange of ideas and networking with great potential for launching professional careers.

The poster registration deadline is April 15, 2019. Discounted student rates for registration will be available, and the Michigan Section offers two scholarships per AIPG student chapter that include registration, lodging and meals.
