Adaptation of Superfund Cleanup to Climate Change
Sponsored by: EPA Office of Superfund Remediation and Technology Innovation
Original Time/Date of Presentation:

April 1, 2015, 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM, EDT (18:00-20:00 GMT)

Presentation Overview:

Adaptation of Superfund Cleanup to Climate Change is a new two-hour webinar providing an overview of climate change vulnerability analyses and adaptation at contaminated sites. In some circumstances climate change may result in vulnerabilities in the protectiveness of contaminated site remedies. The course focuses on how such a vulnerability may be better understood and on the means of achieving increased remedy resilience through adaptation measures. The course builds upon a general understanding of the Superfund process, but is relevant to most cleanup programs. By taking the course, participants will gain a better understanding of the following topics:

  • Overview of Superfund-specific climate change action plan
  • Framing site-specific analyses to understand remedy vulnerabilities throughout the life of a remedy, and of adaptation measures that may increase remedy resilience
  • Tapping existing and relevant information resources when evaluating the potential impacts of climate at Superfund sites
  • Regional case studies of Superfund sites that have been impacted by a major weather event
