NZ 5th Contaminated Land Conference
ALGA is pleased to launch our 5th Contaminated Land Conference held in Christchurch at Rydges between 1st – 3rd May 2018. This is the inaugural event for Christchurch and we eagerly anticipate hearing the contributions from local and international speakers.
The evolution of a Contaminated Land Conference in NZ, came about due to feedback received from our NZ membership, seeking a conference specifically for the "contaminated land and groundwater" industry prepared by people within the industry.
In 2014, ALGA ran it first conference in Auckland. The event went for 4 days, offering 2 x 1 day workshops, a full day conference forum and then a 2 day workshop. It attracted over 100 different delegates from all over New Zealand, as well as Australia.
In 2015 the second conference was run in Auckland. The event had 3 pre-conference workshops (Asbestos, Sustainable Remediation & Geochemistry in Groundwater) followed by a 2-day program.
The 2016 the program started on Tuesday with a closed regulator forum or full-day workshop; Wednesday & Thursday conference sessions and Friday with 2 full-day workshop options.
