Registration Now Open For National Brownfields Conference In Pittsburgh Dec. 5-7

More than 20 years after the first national conference was held in Pittsburgh in 1996, professionals and civic leaders from across the country will return for the 2017 National Brownfields Training Conference.
The event, cosponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and International City/County Management Association, will take place December 5 through 7 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, the only LEED-certified convention center in the world.
Pennsylvania has a rich industrial history and a legacy of reinvention. DEP's brownfields program facilitates new opportunities across the commonwealth by shepherding the reuse and remediation of polluted land or hazardous sites.
Through interdepartmental partnerships with the Department of Community and Economic Development, businesses and industries from steel mills to dry cleaners and military bases to railyards transform into housing, shopping, office space, and healthcare facilities.  (Click Here for success stories.)
DEP’s own Southwest Regional Office on Washington’s Landing is just one of the many brownfields that have been recycled to housing, recreation, and commercial uses where an industrial site once stood.
