The Brownfield Briefing Groundwater conference is back on 25 April 2013

The programme will focus on regulatory updates, effective sampling and data collection for risk assessment, and sustainable and in-situ remediation.

New Techniques for Achieving Accurate, Sustainable & Cost-Effective Assessment and Remediation of Groundwater will bring together leaders in hydrogeology, environmental consultancy, geochemistry and land contamination for a comprehensive analysis of this rapidly changing sector.

Delegates will include policy and regulatory advisors, engineers, laboratory technicians, water consultants and local authorities, to hear assessments of the regulatory impacts on groundwater following the implementation of new regulations and the NPPF. The conference will fuel discussions on how practical applications and emerging technologies in remediation, sampling and protection will evolve.

Last year saw the publication of the National Planning Policy Framework, while 2013 indicates progress for the Water Framework and Groundwater Daughter Directives and Groundwater Protection: Principals and Practice (GP3). The landscape of groundwater remediation and risk assessment is therefore expected to change rapidly in the coming years, with tighter guidelines for sustainability, the overhaul of the planning system and advances in technology. This Brownfield Briefing event will cover the progress of these directives and their implementation.

As well as addressing the changing political and regulatory landscape, speakers will also discuss best practice techniques in modelling, geochemical studies, risk assessment of vapour intrusion and application of sustainable remediation to groundwater.

The afternoon session is dedicated to case studies demonstrating the effective use of sustainable groundwater remediation techniques, including bioengineering of nanoparticles and aggressive remediation technologies that provide a sustainable alternative. These sessions will ensure delegates are given every opportunity to hear first-hand the real world applications from their professional peers. 

The Brownfield Briefing Groundwater conference is on the 25th April 2013.
