​Groundwater 2022

Updated Approaches to the Risk Assessment & Management of PFAS & Other Emerging Contaminants in Groundwater

12 May, online conference   

   

In recent years there has been a significant increase in new contaminants being detected at low levels in surface and groundwater. Many of these, which include Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS), antibiotics, manufacturing by-products and pesticides, are potentially harmful and furthermore, are persistent in the environment and challenging to treat using most traditional techniques. 

Our annual Groundwater conference will explore different emerging contaminants, including PFAS and 1,4-Dioxane, the current regulatory guidance for their risk assessment and management, appropriate monitoring and sampling analysis, and novel remediation techniques being developed to tackle these “forever chemicals”.

​Managing Rising Costs and Resource Issues in Development                                        

24 May - Business Leader Roundtable Discussion

 

The increase in construction and development projects in order for the UK to ""build back better"" means potential business growth for consultants and contractors involved in brownfield regeneration and development. However these opportunities are being hampered by shortages of staff, resources and equipment on the ground.

Major infrastructure projects such as HS2 are swallowing up available materials and equipment such as drilling rigs, as well as capacity in laboratories. These impacts on the supply chain, coupled with Brexit swiftly followed by the pandemic mean a materials and resource crisis is now significantly threatening growth and development prospects. In addition, inflationary pressures and the on-going skills shortage are causing a sharp increase in costs, many of which can not always be passed on. Where land value is supressed, sites cannot be brought forward as quickly as would be preferred.  

This roundtable discussion will enable business leaders in regeneration & development to discuss the current situation with their peers across all disciplines, and explore possible solutions to the current supply chain challenges.

This event is for Brownfield & Regeneration Network members only. If you are interested in attending this roundtable please contact amanda@environment-analyst.com.
