A recent train derailment in the US state of Ohio – involving a freight train carrying hazardous materials – brought substantial public scrutiny around the safety of downstream drinking water sources, and the response to contaminant spills that affect waterways and aquifers.

Join industry experts as we visit prominent spills that have affected waterways and aquifers, and explore how best practices in water quality modelling, monitoring, and clean-up technology have evolved over time. Our experts will also explore how advances in remediation practices and other innovations have improved our current ability to assess and treat contaminant flow.

We'll also get an overview of environmental DNA technology, which can be used to establish baseline conditions for river health and to assess the impacts of spills or other changes on aquatic species.
