WEBINAR: Long-term Contaminant Management Using Institutional Controls 1:00PM-3:15PM EST
This will assist those who are responsible for the management and stewardship of Institutional Controls (ICs), which are administrative or legal restrictions that provide protection from exposure to contaminants on a site. While a variety of guidance and research to date has focused on the implementation of ICs, ITRC’s Long-term Contaminant Management Using Institutional Controls (IC-1, 2016) guidance and this associated training class focuses on post-implementation IC management, including monitoring, evaluation, stakeholder communications, enforcement, and termination.. ITRC has developed a downloadable tool that steps users through the process of planning and designing IC management needs. This tool can help to create a long lasting record of the site that includes the regulatory authority, details of the IC, the responsibilities of all parties, a schedule for monitoring the performance of the IC, and more. The tool generates an editable Long Term Stewardship (LTS) plan in Microsoft Word.

WEBINAR: Environmental Due Diligence Considerations for Lenders and Purchasers 3:00PM-:45PM Environmental due diligence is a broad topic that is important to understand as it can vary from project to project and can be used to not only manage but reduce stakeholder risk. Although a financial institution may complete due diligence assessments to help ensure its borrower will be able to repay the loan, a buyer could use the results to negotiate a lower sale price. On the other hand, a seller may complete environmental due diligence to demonstrate that the property is environmentally “clean” and sell the property at market value or higher. Understanding what environmental due diligence is and the different types can help not only manage and/or reduce your risk but can also benefit you in other ways.
