The ASTSWMO CERCLA and Brownfields Subcommittee is pleased to invite you to our Superfund and Brownfields Symposium on Tuesday, August 9 – Thursday, August 11, 2022, in Des Moines, IA. This year’s theme is “Remediation to Restoration to Revitalization.” This theme refers to the process of remediating contaminated sediments and restoring ecosystems to foster sustainable revitalization in coastal communities. Remediation to Restoration to Revitalization is a framework for translating ecological consequences from remediation and restoration projects into environmental and socioeconomic benefits such as swimmable water, enhanced recreational amenities, and green development. Remediation to Restoration to Revitalization supports States, Regions, and other partners to clean up contaminated sites in ways that reduce health and environmental risks and help return these sites as valuable assets for local communities.
The two and-a-half day Symposium has been designed as a forum for interaction among State and Territorial (State) Superfund and Brownfields Managers, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Headquarters and Regional staff, and other invited guests. The primary objective of this Symposium is to emphasize discussion and information-sharing opportunities among speakers and attendees regarding approaches and strategies used by State Brownfield and Superfund programs in remediating, restoring. and revitalizing the various sites across the country. Due to limitations on hotel meeting space capacity and accommodations availability, priority attendance will be given to our members, federal officials, and invited guests. Additional information on State member reimbursement and participation for the Symposium is provided below.
