Contaminated site cleanup remedies (especially long-term) should be designed, implemented, and monitored to withstand the impacts of climate change throughout the project lifecycle. Extreme weather events, flooding, and sea level rise may result in the release of contaminants to the environment or potential mobilization of contaminants through rising groundwater. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Defense are incorporating climate change and resiliency into several of their programs, including site remediation. Under the CERCLA program five review, it is becoming more common to consider climate change impacts that could call into question the protectiveness of the remedy. This webinar will discuss these considerations and other guidance.
