# 011318Emerging Environmental Issues: What Will You and Your Clients be Working on in the Future?
The next wave of environmental legal issues is now being discovered in the field and discussed in the technical offices of regulatory bodies. This lunch program will include a panel of nationally recognized experts who will present information on emerging environmental problems they are currently encountering and how these problems are anticipated to lead to future legal issues.
Among the issues that will be discussed: new and/or more prevalent chemicals of concern, lower analytical testing levels, more stringent regulatory standards, and how these findings can affect site cleanup requirements, methods, and costs. As a key example, a case study on the emerging issues related to the solvent stabilizer, 1,4-dioxane will be presented.
The panelists will include Thomas Mohr, Senior Hydrogeologist, Santa Clara Valley Water District, and author of the book, Environmental Investigation and Remediation; 1,4-Dioxane and other Solvent Stabilizers, Michael Kavanaugh, Ph.D., P.E., Principal, Geosyntec Consultants and Member, National Academy of Engineering, and Hamid Saebfar, Office of Pollution and Green Technology, California Department of Toxic Substances Control.
