About the Conference (Battelle.org)
The 2023 Sediments Conference will be a forum for sharing research results, practical experiences, and innovative approaches to investigating, remediating, and restoring the environmental and economic vitality of waterways and aquatic systems. The program reflects the growing body of knowledge about better ways to manage contaminated sediment systems using state-of-the-science data collection, analysis, and visualization, along with novel approaches in remedy design and implementation.
The 2023 program includes sessions and panel discussions focused on emerging contaminants and critical considerations in sediment management and remediation, including characterization and management of per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), beneficial use of contaminated sediments, climate change, advanced data analytics to improve decision-making and remedy design, and incorporating environmental justice from project inception through completion stages.
