Denver, CO -  The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Great

workshops in Sioux Falls, SD, Salt Lake City, UT and Denver, CO on
"Assessment and Cleanup Strategies for Site Redevelopment Based on
Intended Land Use and Risk Analysis." The workshop is free to government

issues. The fee for all others is $25 and early registration is
encouraged. The workshops are scheduled as follows:

Sioux Falls, SD -- May 4, 1999

Workshop participants will gain an overview of environmental assessment
and cleanup strategies based on cost, risk and intended land-use goals.

Key topics will include:

* using decisions about costs, laws and risks to steer site assessment
techniques and selection of cleanup strategy;

* designing streamlined, complete sampling strategies that meet EPA
QA/QC requirements;

*  understanding relationships among cleanup options, risk and
redevelopment economics; and learning methods used to select a cleanup
strategy

The workshop will be especially helpful for local government officials
responsible for activities funded by EPA Brownfields grants, property
owners, interested citizens, developers, financiers, regulators and
environmental contractors. It is tailored specifically for local
governments and those who hire contractors to perform site
characterizations and recommend cleanup options.
