Assessing the potential for ecological risk at a hazardous waste site is paramount to the remedial decision-making process. This is particularly true in New Jersey with the passage of the Site Remediation Reform Act and development of the Ecological Evaluation Technical Guidance. Help your client understand how the ecological risk assessment process aids in developing realistic approaches to remediating sites. For future LSRP’s, understand the role that ecological risk assessment plays in developing clean-up goals for your site.
By understanding regional, state, and federal risk-based standards, you can be responsible for the economic gains and environmental restoration of your client’s next project. Implement the preventative capabilities provided in our course and you will increase your ability to evaluate risk and determine the response of biological systems to environmental pollutants.
This two-day program will provide you with a comprehensive overview of regulatory expectations of ecological risk assessments from both federal and state perspectives.
On Day One, learn about methodologies and innovative approaches being employed to conduct ecological risk evaluations and assessments of aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems under CERCLA, RCRA, and various state mandates.
