** Battelle Remediation Conference to Hold Karst Remediation Session! **

Dates: From 19 May, 2014 till 22 May, 2014

A session regarding remediation of karst aquifers has been added to Battelle’s upcoming Ninth International Conference on Remediation of Chlorinated and Recalcitrant Compounds. This is a first for this, the premier international conference focusing on remediating challenging contaminated sites.

Historically, remediating environmental impacts in karst terranes has received little attention in the peer-reviewed literature or at national remediation conferences. It is time that the environmental-remediation industry begin to focus on, discuss, and tackle this important problem.  If you are involved in research related to remediating karst aquifers, are planning or have conducted a remedial action in a karst aquifer, or can add insight to this topic, here is the ideal forum to present your findings and help further the discussion on this salient topic! Here are the details:

Conference: Ninth International Conference on Remediation of Chlorinated and Recalcitrant Compounds (Monterey, California; May 19-22, 2014)

Prospective Session Title: Remediation in Karst Aquifers

Session Chairs: Keith A. White, CPG and Ralph O. Ewers, PhD.

Abstract Due Date: September 15, 2013!

Conference Website: http://battelle.org/media/battelle-conferences/chlorcon

Information on Submitting an Abstract: http://www.battelle.org/media/battelle-conferences/conference-on-remediation-of-chlorinated-recalcitrant-compounds/presenters-authors/abstract-specification-review
