Contaminated sediments pose a significant problem in Minnesota and throughout the Great Lakes region.  Created by decades of industrial and municipal discharges, and non-point source runoff, high concentrations of contaminants remain in the sediments of rivers and harbors, resulting in fish consumption advisories and other health and environmental concerns.  Sediment cleanups are expensive and complicated.  EPA and many states are increasingly turning their attention to this problem and related natural resource damage claims are multiplying.

Join us for a presentation that will provide an overview of the sediment contamination problem, highlight legal issues and remediation strategies and present a case study of a cleanup where significant cost savings resulted from the building of a collaborative effort between the legal and technical teams.

Denis M. Roznowski, P.E. Project Director / Environmental Engineer, Foth Infrastructure & Environment, LLC, Green Bay, WI
Curtis M. Hudak , Ph.D., P.G., Vice President, Foth Infrastructure & Environment, LLC, Lake Elmo, MN
