Who we are

The Society of American Military Engineers is the only nonprofit professional engineering education organization that actively promotes the advancement of both individual technical knowledge and the collective engineering capabilities of governments, the uniformed services and private industry.

Our goal is to unite public and private sector entities and individuals in the A/E/C fields so that we can prepare for and overcome natural and man made disasters, acts of terrorism and improve security at home and abroad.

The Buffalo Post accomplishes this goal locally by supporting monthly luncheon meetings and other professional/social activities attended by members of local government, military, private industry, students and other interested parties. These meetings are announced via our e-mail distribution list and quarterly newsletter. We are supported by the national Society of American Military Engineers and publications such as The Military Engineer, which also promotes the interests and goals of our society and its members. Please peruse our website to discover the benefits of SAME Buffalo Post membership.

Webinar: Latest Advancements in Addressing 1,4-Dioxane 

(1 PDH)

Sponsored By: SAME Environmental Committee

POC: Nicole Mathews


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


  • 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
