Call for Abstracts
This 7th 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 Characterization’s Role in Remedy Selection. Managing risks from hazardous substances released to the environment requires thoughtful decision making to ensure that human health and the environment are protect-ed. To make well informed decisions, the information and data collected are expected to support the conclusions and selected remedial solutions to manage site contaminant risks.
The AIPG Michigan Section is seeking abstracts for new case studies that highlight the latest tools and innovative methods used to help us characterize sites and collect information that guide our risk management decisions.
The presentations at this workshop will focus on how to identify risk management remedies ranging from aggressive removal to long term exposure maintenance, what are the right questions to ask, and how to collect the data to answer those questions. 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 in-dustry, we make decisions regarding potential and real exposures daily using tools developed from the latest advances in science and technology, statutory requirements and professional experience.
The program will be developed on the basis of a review of abstracts. One page abstracts are to be submitted as Microsoft Word files, single spaced, and 12 point Arial font.
