This year, the conference will focus on regional case studies and actionable solutions to contaminated land and groundwater challenges.
With the aim to bring together local councils, regulatory agencies and consultants, the conference will cover topics such as new planning policy frameworks, new strategies for effective risk assessments and best practice guidance for the testing and verification of hazardous ground gas protection measures.
