The year’s premier conference focused on highway, transportation, and utility infrastructure contractors is one week away! While you’re waiting to attend the event on November 8-9th, plan your days by checking out the following two education sessions.
Progressive Design Build (PDB) represents a paradigm shift in the way public infrastructure projects are conceived, designed, and constructed. In recent years, PDB has gained significant traction as an innovative project delivery method among public project owners. Join Eric Meisgeier with Stacy and Witbeck and Greg Gastelum with LA Metro for a session that will equip you with the essential knowledge and insights required to navigate the world of PDB effectively.
PFAS: From Regulatory Actions to Contractor Opportunities
The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) appropriates $1 billion to the Clean Water State Revolving Fund (CWSRF) to address emerging contaminants, including perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in wastewater, stormwater, and nonpoint source pollution. This presents a unique opportunity to prioritize investment to local communities experiencing contamination that have few options to finance solutions through traditional programs.
As PFAS removal projects become more common, they present growing opportunities for contractors on the front line of mitigation efforts. Kristin Ratajczak with EPA and Wes Smith with Black & Veatch will provide an overview of emerging contaminants, PFAS and PFOA, discuss types of projects that contractors may encounter to address these contaminants, and requirements associated with BIL-funded projects.
