2015 RPIC Federal Contaminated Sites Regional Workshop
Assessment and Remediation on Remote or Northern Sites
June 3-4, 2015 at the Westin Edmonton
10135 100 St NW, Edmonton, Alberta
The Real Property Institute of Canada (RPIC) is well known for its biennial RPIC Federal Contaminated Sites National Workshops (RPIC FCSNW), a leading professional development event for federal and industry environmental professionals involved in the management and remediation of federal contaminated sites. Since 2006, the RPIC FCSNW has been held in Ottawa, Vancouver, Montreal and Toronto.
The first RPIC Federal Contaminated Sites Regional Workshop (RPIC FCSRW) was hosted in Kingston in 2011 and offered participants in-depth training on sustainable remediation in Canada. The June 2013 RPIC FCSRW followed in Halifax and offered a wide variety of opportunities to learn about technical, operational and organizational challenges relating to sustainable approaches to contaminated sites assessment and project planning.
The 2015 RPIC FCSRW will be held June 3-4 in Edmonton and will focus on Assessment and Remediation on Remote or Northern Sites. The workshop will offer a wide variety of opportunities to learn about recent advances and experiences in addressing technical, logistical and organizational challenges for projects located in isolated, difficult-to-access locations that face extreme seasonal limitations.
An exciting new component has been added to the 2015 RPIC FCSRW with the inclusion of Field Demonstrations of analytical technology. Real-time measurement methods and technologies are helping contaminated site managers reduce costs and shorten the timelines required to characterize sites as compared to conventional techniques. An interactive and hands on series of sessions will be held in conjunction with the Workshop that will allow participants the opportunity to see these new technologies and methods at work.
