Volunteering Your Way to Success"
Facilitor: Daniel Sola, R.G., Principal Hydrogeologist, ADEQ
Panelists: Scott Green, Catlin Burwell and Travis Barnum


An expert panel of representatives from ADEQ’s Voluntary Remediation, Brownfields, and Declaration of Environmental Use Restriction (DEUR) programs will dissect the mechanics of each program in an interactive format. We will show examples of redevelopment projects and the benefits of bringing sites back into beneficial reuse.  For consultants, we will provide insight into which of these programs is right for your clients.This will then be an opportunity for you to ask knowledgeable ADEQ staff any questions involving entering and working within each program and how the three programs can intersect. Agency expectations and our latest initiatives to assist with closure and redevelopment will also be discussed.
