Previous SRI Webinars
Regional Water Availability and Superfund: Generating a Valuable Resource at Phoenix-Goodyear Airport Area
January 13, 2016 2:00 PM-3:30 PM, EDT
This webinar shared in-depth information about strategies stakeholders have used to work together to reuse treated groundwater from the Phoenix-Goodyear Airport Area Superfund site. Presentations highlighted specific water reuse activities and the benefits realized by the City of Goodyear, potentially responsible parties (PRPs) and local businesses. Webinar participants learned how the cleanup design enabled the continued operation of businesses on site, ensured the availability of clean water and significant cost savings to the City, and resulted in the reuse of billions of gallons of treated groundwater annually.
Ecological Revitalization and Contaminated Sites
March 17, 2016, 2:00 PM-3:30 PM, EDT
This webinar provided an overview of how restoring local ecosystems as part of the cleanup and reuse of contaminated properties can enhance remedies, strengthen community interest and provide significant environmental benefits. The webinar featured a case study of the TVA Kingston Fossil Plant Fly Ash site in Kingston, Tennessee, describing how restoration efforts went beyond cleanup requirements. The participants learned how TVA Kingston Fossil Plant Fly Ash site ecological revitalization supported natural habitats and diverse native species.
Waterfront Reuse in EPA Region 2: Providing Riverfront Access
June 15, 2016, 2:00 PM-3:30 PM, EDT
This webinar discussed the importance of reuse at and near riverfront contaminated properties. Reuse efforts can include habitat restoration as well as the creation of recreational and green space amenities. Presentations highlighted waterfront projects at Superfund sites in New York and New Jersey as well as projects by The Trust for Public Land.
Protecting Pollinators through Sustainable Superfund Reuse
September 8, 2016, 2:00 PM-3:30 PM, EDT
This SRI webinar explored the sustainable and conscientious reuse of Superfund sites and other blighted properties as pollinator habitats. The webinar shared how EPA has worked alongside federal and private partners to support the development and maintenance of pollinator habitat. Speakers shared case studies of and resources for the development of pollinator habitat.
Re-imagining the Future of Mining Sites
December 7, 2016, 3:30 - 5:00PM EST
This webinar showed how EPA works with mining stakeholders, including other federal agencies, states, local groups and industries, not only to address the serious health and environmental challenges posed by some mining practices, but also to support the reuse of these areas to benefit the surrounding community. This webinar explored the broad spectrum of safe and productive reuses possible at mining sites and presented a case study highlighting several of these reuses in practice at a mining site near Salt Lake City, Utah.
