There are significant changes to regulations for remediation of contaminated sites in Michigan. DEQ's Remediation and Redevelopment Division is presenting three Environmental Remediation and Risk Management Conferences.  Attendees will hear about how changes to Part 201 and Part 213 have created opportunities for cost effective remediation solutions.

The dates and places are October 1 in Novi, October 7 in Traverse City and October 14 in Grand Rapids.

The conferences will address the new Water Strategy and the importance of cleaning up contaminated sites for future generations.

DEQ's Remediation and Redevelopment staff will give updates on RCRA/Part 111 Corrective Action, Michigan’s Role in the TSCA PCB Remediation Program, Land and Resource Use Restrictions Overview, No Further Action and Redevelopment, Brownfields - Solving Technical Issues, and more.

Invasive Mussels

The Invasive Mussel Collaborative is offering a new listserv developed to promote communication among stakeholders engaged in zebra and quagga mussel management, control, research or related efforts. This new service began September 1.

“This listserv will be a forum for sharing information about invasive mussel control, research and management.  Appropriate postings include management strategies, field study results, permitting information, policy issues, research, etc. This list will also receive information from the Invasive Mussel Collaborative (, including webinar announcements and other relevant information.”
