Sarah Dougherty The Importance of Interdisciplinary Planning and Execution of Remediation Projects for Contaminated Sites.
September 15 @ 13:30 - 15:30
Construction and remediation projects at contaminated sites are dynamic and complex. Planning these types of projects involves many professions from a broad range of backgrounds, including professional engineers, scientists, health and safety personnel, construction personnel, and managers. While many construction projects are very complex, contaminated sites have the added complication of having toxic substances affecting different media, including soils, bedrock, groundwater, surface water, and/or air. Premeditating these toxic substances can produce dangerous conditions. Planning for these dangerous conditions is of the utmost importance to help protect wildlife, vegetation, workers, and the public. Ms. Dougherty will discuss the importance of interdisciplinary project planning and execution, focusing on remediation of contaminated sites to repurpose lands for new uses.
