The Capital District post of the Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) is a nonprofit professional engineering association located in upstate New York. SAME brings together professional engineers and those in engineering-related fields:
  • To improve and increase the engineering capabilities of the nation;
  • To exchange and advance the knowledge of engineering technologies, applications, and practices.

Our post aims to connect architects, engineers, and builders in the public sector and private industry, uniting them to improve individual and collective capabilities for national security.
SAME is a nonprofit professional engineering association, headquartered in Alexandria, Virginia with posts worldwide. Founded in 1920, SAME today has nearly 27,000 members from industry, military and government organizations, and academia.

Webinar: Latest Advancements in Addressing 1,4-Dioxane 

(1 PDH)

Sponsored By: SAME Environmental Committee

POC: Nicole Mathews

REGISTER TODAY


1,4-Dioxane has been described as “the emerging contaminant that keeps on emerging”.  Since 2001, when analytical detection limits dropped from 100 ug/L to 1 ug/L, 1,4-dioxane has been detected at many sites where the presence of this common solvent stabilizer was previously unknown.  The revelation of 1,4-dioxane’s widespread occurrence at solvent release sites where 1,1,1-trichloroethane was used, and its occurrence at a wide variety of other sites, has attracted the attention of both the regulatory and regulated communities. There has been a steady growth in technical publications regarding 1,4-dioxane remediation solutions in both peer-reviewed journals and ESTCP, SERDP, and AWRF. Drinking water sampling results from the 3rd Unregulated Contaminant Monitoring Requirements show that 1,4-dioxane is present in >6% of the US supply above 0.07 ug/L,. which suggests that there remain many 1,4-dioxane release sites as yet uninvestigated or unmitigated, and the demand for skills and services to address 1,4-dioxane is growing.

Who Should Attend:

  • Environmental Project Managers

  • Remediation Professionals

  • Technologists

  • Individuals interested in dioxane, chlorinated solvents, emerging contaminants

Objective:

  • Learn about 1,4-dioxane occurrence, chemistry, regulation, and treatment technologies

  • Learn the very latest industry information related to natural attenuation of 1,4-dioxane and other innovative approaches

Scholarship Ideas Wanted!

At our last board meeting, we discussed the desire to sponsor some potential scholarships for high school or college age students interested in joining the military or pursuing engineering. If you have ideas of opportunities to sponsor or to contribute to a scholarship, let Keith Lashway know!
