To avoid problems and successfully remediate and redevelop a contaminated property, waste site cleanup professionals need to know about stormwater program requirements and stormwater management professionals need to know about contaminated properties and cleanup requirements. Stormwater management is also key to the climate resiliency planning that state and federal government agencies are emphasizing at cleanup sites.

To mitigate contamination to waterways, stormwater programs promote the use of onsite infiltration. However, at many contaminated properties, the remediation plan allows contamination to remain onsite if it is isolated from direct contact and precipitation. The goals of the two programs can, therefore, be at odds, and the redevelopment plan for a contaminated property can be negatively impacted if the two approaches are not considered early on and reconciled.

This workshop will cover examples and lessons learned from real sites. Topics covered include:

  • Waste site cleanup fundamentals & potential conflicts with stormwater requirements
  • Stormwater fundamentals & potential conflicts with waste site cleanup requirements
  • Strategies & technologies to comply with both sets of requirements
  • Demonstration of a RI DEM project planning tool that others can use
  • Case studies of contaminated property redevelopment projects impacted by stormwater management issues
