Oracle Environmental staff are looking forward to attending the following events over the coming months:

CIRIA, Contaminated Land and Extreme Weather Conditions on 29 June 2015. CIRIA and the Adaptation and Resilience in the Context of Change (ARCC) network, have devised this event to review how recent extreme weather conditions, in particular flooding, have affected the design and delivery of contaminated land projects in the UK. The event will explore the impact of extreme weather events on the mobility of contaminants, the effectiveness of remediation processes and risk management and how to make contaminated land remediation projects more ‘flood proof’ in the future. More information can be found on the CIRIA website here: www.ciria.org

CIWEM, Shale Gas and Integrated Water Management, on 7 July 2015. The conference will look at the perceived risks of shale gas extraction to the environment and the management of these risks. Speakers will also discuss the use of best available techniques (BAT) of produced and flow back waters, monitoring and management of extractive waste and integrated water management.
