The second National Conference was held June 10, 2019. Northeastern was happy to announce it was a great success. The significant growth in the number of contaminated sites, public awareness, community organizing, public policy, advisories and regulation, scientific research, and media attention called us to once again bring together the array of participants and stakeholders that made the first conference so successful.
