Featured Keynote Speaker - Aaron Johnson, Ph.D., AIPG National Executive Director

This 8th 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 Emerging Contaminants & Pathways: A New Paradigm. The discovery of new hazardous substances in the environment is becoming a driving force in the environmental industry with ever evolving information ranging from the discovery of the hazardous substances to finding remedies and management strategies to prevent exposure and protect human health and the environment. These emerging contaminants include substances like Per- and polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS),pharmaceuticals, 1,4-dioxane, perchlorate, brominated flame retardants, energetics, insensitive munitions, etc.

Additionally, as more information is discovered about hazardous substances and their toxicity and associated exposure routes, certain pathways like volatilization to indoor air are also emerging as more serious concerns than once thought. As these emerging contaminants and pathways are introduced and we look for means to assess their toxicity, their sources, their behaviors in the environment, associated legal concerns and how to manage exposures and implement remediation technologies, sharing information as practitioners in the environmental industry is crucial to addressing these new concerns in a timely manner to prevent unnecessary exposures.

This workshop will provide the same thought provoking, 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.

Be sure to sign up early! This event often sells out!

We look forward to seeing you there!
