BCONE sponsors no- or low-cost networking events, roundtables, site tours, and educational seminars. The annual Northeast Sustainable Communities Workshop is BCONE’s premiere annual program, at which BCONE partners with other organizations to explore issues related to the environment and sustainability.  BCONE’s Pro Bono Counseling Program, known as BRIGHT,  provides no-cost support to municipalities and project stakeholders to assist them through the maze of available financial and remedial brownfield programs within each state. The Pro Bono Program includes a team of brownfield practitioners visiting municipalities and project sites to provide no-cost support and education to facilitate redevelopment at brownfield projects.

Join Julia Martin and Jean Everett of BOUSQUET HOLSTEIN PLLC and members of BCONE and NYCBP,  and Larry Schnapf of Schnapf LLC and member of the BCONE Board of Directors and the NYCBP Advisory Council as they discuss the proposed regulations and applying the new guidance to contaminated sites and brownfields in Qualified Opportunity Zones.

    INCLUDES:  Important information, lots of time for questions and answers, and a continental breakfast.

    This NYCBP  panel will provide you with  the new playbook for characterizing, transporting, and disposing of fill from your project.

    The Metro New York City construction market is in full swing,  driven by a robust growth in real estate development and capital infrastructure and transportation projects. Off-site disposal of surplus excavated fill not only represents a significant budgetary liability in terms of construction costs, but also a huge environmental liability if not handled correctly. The complex regulatory framework that guides decisions for regulated fill disposal has created a widely misunderstood arena for project stakeholders. And new changes are here.

    In a dramatic rethinking of the way New York handles solid waste and beneficial use opportunities, NYSDEC has revised the 6 NYCRR Part 360 Solid Waste Regulation for the first time in over 20 years. The new rules provide new tools to efficiently and cheaply reuse excavated fill material on local projects, creating massive opportunities for project owners and contractors. Will include presentation of the current planned updates and changes to the regulations expected to come out in June 2019.

    Currently, the majority of surplus fill generated in NYC is trucked out-of-state to New Jersey or Pennsylvania for beneficial reuse projects such as brownfield capping or mine reclamation. And while New York rolls out the new Part 360 regulations, these two states have also pushed through significant changes to their own beneficial reuse and characterization rules that will further impact the NYC fill market.

    WHO SHOULD ATTEND?  Construction managers, design teams and sustainability designers as well as anyone tasked with the implementation of infrastructure design, environmental consultants involved in green remediation, capital construction and sustainable options for material reuse.

    SPEAKERS:

    Kevin McCarty, NYCBP Board member and a senior consultant with GEI Consultants, Inc., P.C..  Kevin has dedicated a significant part of his career to the management and reuse of these materials, and he will discuss how changes to the NYS 360 regulations changes are intended to work.

    Joel Rogers, NYCBP Advisory Board member and founder of Factor Engineers.  Joel has extensive experience managing fill and solid waste, not only in the Metro NYC area, but also in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Joel will discuss beneficial use of fill material sent across state lines, and related new NJ and PA rules that will impact how things are done in NYC.

    Joel and Kevin will lead an audience discussion in a comparing and contrasting how the new rules work, and how they would benefit from a coordinated approach.

      The 10th Northeast Sustainable Communities Workshop
      June 4, 2019

      New Jersey Institute of Technology in Newark, NJ

      Now in its 10th year, the Brownfield Coalition of the Northeast (BCONE) will be hosting the Northeast Sustainable Communities Workshop (NSCW) 2019, at the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) in Newark, New Jersey, on June 4, 2019.  The conference brings together experts and attendees to discuss the most current and state of the art approaches and strategies that you probably will not hear anywhere else. 

      The NSCW's goal is to break new ground, offer new ideas, and posit new concepts on the topics of sustainability, collaboration and leverage, contamination, resiliency, brownfields, technology, and their impact on community revitalization. Our past events have been attended by representatives from government, higher education, professional organizations, and laboratories, as well as attorneys, developers, contractors, and consultants.
