 Plan to attend the 9th Annual SABCS
Workshop and Conference on Contaminated Sites on

September 25th and 26th, 2019

Adapting Contaminated Sites Management to a Changing Climate

A key emerging and future trend in contaminated sites management is adaption to climate change.  We will explore how climate change is affecting our natural environment and groundwater systems, how chemical fate and transport in the subsurface may be affected by climate change, implications for site investigations, and how remedies at contaminated and mine waste sites may be vulnerable to climate change and extreme weather events. Emerging practices for identifying adaptation measures to improve assurance of climate resilience will be discussed.  The influence of climate change with respect to sea level rise, salt-water intrusion, water budget and changes in weather patterns will be considered.  Groundwater and surface water interactions are important to characterize in British Columbia given our water dominated landscape.  A sub-theme will be groundwater contamination sources and new and emerging field and mathematical approaches to characterize groundwater seepage and impacts on water bodies, where assessment includes a climate change lens.  Workshop speakers will be experts in the related fields and panel discussions will be held to facilitate interaction with participants.  The workshop will include both emerging policy and higher level issues for climate change and practical approaches for addressing this issue in contaminated sites management.

 

        Conference September 26, downtown Vancouver location at SFU Harbourside West Hastings or Segal Centre Granville Street, is being finalized
A one day program of submitted papers in site investigation, remediation, analytical and monitoring topics. Look for the Call for Abstracts shortly.
Details of September Events:
Once again, we have secured convenient venues in downtown Vancouver. We have been able to maintain the same lower fees for the events.

As in previous years, a hot breakfast and a buffet lunch are provided. Each delegate receives a flash drive with presentations for the events they are attending.
