Solutions for Multifaceted Brownfields Projects: Funding, Site Assessment, and Redevelopment Strategies

Tuesday April 11, 2023, 9 am PT/12 pm ET
Speakers: Amy Dzialowski and Wendy Key, PG, CEM

Municipalities and the private sector are increasingly seeking to redevelop potentially impaired properties to strengthen local economies, rebuild communities, invigorate urban cores, promote sustainable growth, and improve soil and groundwater quality. However, the complicated environmental conditions and economic distress typical of brownfields sites create a higher potential risk for the stakeholders involved in the revitalization process. Creative environmental assessment and redevelopment strategies can reduce liability and overcome persistent environmental and economic hurdles. Several examples will be described in this presentation: (1) grant funding, including identifying sites that are good candidates for grant funding, and the process of obtaining government or community grants to offset redevelopment costs; (2) environmental conditions assessment and management of environmental hazards; and (3) remediating and/or controlling subsurface impacts identified during redevelopment activities. By rethinking environmental solutions throughout the entire brownfields cycle, we can reimagine more sustainable communities as we bring properties back into beneficial reuse.

Protecting our Surface Waters: Proper Assessment Leads to Effective Project Implementation

Tuesday May 9, 2023, 9 am PT/12 pm ET
Speakers: Mike Hardin, Ph.D., P.E. and Mark Ellard, P.E., CFM, D.WRE, ENVSP

Municipalities, water districts, and private interests are investing millions of dollars in implementing various protection and improvement projects geared towards helping our lakes, streams, and estuaries meet their water quality targets and intended use. With such significant investments, it is important that protection and improvement strategies are targeted to the appropriate pollutant sources which are leading to impairments. Misidentified pollutant sources can lead to ineffective recommendations that result in wasted investment. This presentation will discuss various strategies and provide project examples focused on sharing appropriate assessment methods and strategies to target the specific sources of surface water impairment to maximize the benefit received for dollars spent.
