Managing Legacy Landfill Contamination2018/07/20
Contamination related to legacy landfill is a challenge facing councils as land managers, consultants, contractors, regulatory authorities and the community.
The nature and quantity of waste is often not clearly defined, and landfill cells were historically unlined, causing uncontrolled migration of contamination through leachate. The production of gas from the breakdown of waste can result in risk of explosion and subsidence, and risks from emerging contaminants of concern such as PFAS are entering the scene.
The conference will offer plenty of networking opportunities with a casual dinner the night before the conference as well as a networking session with drinks and nibbles after the conclusion of the program.
This full-day conference is looking to focus on:
Understanding the regulatory requirements around legacy landfills
The main contamination issues associated with landfills, including emerging contaminants
Strategies, methodologies ＆ constraints associated with contamination investigations, ＆ remediation
Case studies from landfill remediation ＆ for a council management strategy
