SABCS Workshop
Contaminants of Emerging and Future Concern
 

October 26, 2016
Earl and Jennie Lohn Policy Room, SFU Harbourside Centre
515 West Hastings Street, Vancouver, BC

This is a full day of speakers from the US and Canada who are experts on topics related to Emerging Contaminants. The workshop is highly recommended for intermediate and senior level professionals.  
Look for a detailed program to be posted shortly.

Contaminants of Emerging and Future Concern

Practitioners must have the most recent information  on contaminants that are becoming priorities for inclusion in standards in groundwater, soil and sediment in order to be ready to include these in the site investigation plan. Some such as PFOA and PCP(Personal Care products),  are recent; some have been present longer with renewed priority  such as Selenium and industrial organic solvents sulfolane and dioxane. More emphasis on harmful effects other than acute toxicity, such as reproductive (endocrine disruptors) and neuro toxicity are emerging. Understanding the chemical and physical properties of these classes of compounds will prepare you for optimizing your remediation  approach and your sampling, analysis, and extent of contamination including groundwater .  This year’s workshop provides in depth information in this developing aspect of your practice. Expert speakers on emerging contaminants from the US and Canada address  analytical , practical site investigation and remediation aspects.
