Registration deadline is Sept. 27
The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) plans to host the first-ever regional Great Lakes Environmental Remediation and Redevelopment Conference Oct. 16-18 in Lansing.
More than 500 environmental professionals from around the Great Lakes region will be hearing from experts and sharing information about remediation, emerging contaminants, program implementation and performance, redevelopment and region-wide interest topics. Conference attendees will learn about management methods, successful solutions and best practices.
“We have so much in common across the Great Lakes region from our geography to our natural resources and economic development history,” EGLE Director Liesl Clark said. “So it only makes sense for us to share our experience, the lessons we’ve learned and innovative solutions to putting contaminated properties back to work for their communities. This conference is a catalyst for conversation, collaborations and partnerships – all of which we need to effectively move forward on complex remediation and redevelopment issues.”
Expected attendees include owners and operators of contaminated properties, realtors and developers, environmental consultants, attorneys, state and local units of government, federal and tribal agencies and environmental organizations.
