Brownfields 2022, National Brownfields Conference, Oklahoma City

August 16, 2022

Join SCS Engineers professionals at the National Brownfields Conference in Oklahoma City, August 16-19, 2022.

Several SCS professionals are attending the conference, themed “Sustainable Communities Start Here”.  Brownfields 2022 chose Oklahoma City due to the exciting brownfields redevelopment happening in the city, including the brand new Oklahoma City Convention Center which was built on a redeveloped brownfield site!  2022 is the year to take your community to the next level with unprecedented financial and technical resources. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law included an unprecedented $1.5 billion investment in EPA’s Brownfields program over the next two years, and Brownfields 2022 is the place to learn all about it.

The National Brownfields Conference provides networking and learning opportunities to the members of the Brownfields community.  Conference planners are working to ensure that the venue and travel arrangements will be as safe and healthy as possible so conference attendees can continue to experience the valuable in-person education and networking opportunities that have defined the conference since 1996.

SCS Project Manager, Dale Haase, is presenting on “Trash – the Original Renewable Fuel”.

SCS Engineers’ former National Expert on Brownfields, Amy Dzialowski, is a presenter as well as a conference organizer.
She will talk about “City of Reno USEPA Brownfields Coalition Grant Success!!!!!”

Co-sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the International City/County Management Association (ICMA), the National Brownfields Conference is the largest gathering of stakeholders focused on cleaning up and reusing formerly utilized commercial and industrial properties.

The Conference features a dynamic program of speakers, mobile workshops, films, over 100 educational sessions, and other learning formats calibrated to provide case studies, program updates, and useful strategies for meeting your brownfield challenges head-on.  The exceptional training  has something for both beginners and seasoned professionals.  Topics include:

  • Brownfield Assessment, Cleanups, and Redevelopment
  • Community Engagement and Empowerment
  • Creative Placemaking
  • Equitable Development and Environmental Justice
  • Funding and Financing for Community Revitalization
  • International Programs and Policies
  • Environmental Liability and Enforcement
  • Opportunity Funds and Brownfields Revitalization Renewable Energy Alternatives
  • Resiliency and sustainability
  • Brownfields Strategies for Rural and Small Communities
  • Promoting Public Health through Brownfields Revitalization
  • Workforce Development and Job Training
  • Millions in Brownfields grant and investment opportunities
  • and More!

The conference is also a premier stop for the private sector with a vibrant exhibit hall and other transactional activities that are catered towards companies doing the business of brownfields cleanup and redevelopment. The exhibit hall will feature federal agencies, engineering firms, developers, environmental cleanup companies, legal and financial expertise, nonprofits, and other types of organizations.

Take advantage of a historic investment:  The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law included an unprecedented $1.5 billion investment in EPA’s Brownfields program over the next two years, including Assessment Grants, Multipurpose Grants, Cleanup Grants, Revolving Loan Fund Grants, and Job Training Grants.

As an added bonus, organizers are introducing Brownfields University to the program.  BU is a set of pre-conference training workshops that will provide a core of brownfield concepts and practices to prepare attendees for the full educational program content.

Managing PFAS in Landfill Leachate and Sludge In a Changing Regulatory Climate

July 21, 2022

Register Here to Attend: Managing PFAS in Landfill Leachate and Sludge In a Changing Regulatory Climate 

We hope you can join SCS Engineers for our next free client webinar. Feel free to share this invitation with others who may be interested in registering too.

Landfill operators must contend with incoming PFAS-laden waste streams while managing leachate and sludges potentially contaminated with concentrated levels of PFAS. Sifting through incoming waste, C&D, and special wastes is not feasible. Staying abreast of the rapidly changing regulatory climate and treatment options will help you plan for the ultimate outcomes.

In July’s client webinar, our panelists aim to clarify the flurry of recent plans, health advisories, and announcements while discussing where the analytical methods fall short. We’ll cut through the intimidating headlines in the media and focus on the EPA Action Plan and recent regulatory and proposed changes that are worth monitoring.

Following trends across North American landfills, we will discuss available and promising leachate treatment options. SCS’s engineers, scientists, and landfill operations experts will be at your service throughout the forum and afterward.





This educational, non-commercial webinar with a Q&A forum throughout is free and open to all who want to learn more about landfill PFAS regulations and leachate treatments. We recommend this month’s discussion for landfill owners/operators, solid waste planners, environmental engineers, municipalities, and environmental agency staff.

Certificates of Attendance are available for attendees who register on Zoom and attend the live session. Sharing another person’s link to join the live session does not register your name. SCS does not sell or share any data collected at Zoom registration.
