Film and discussion - Detropia
7 p.m.Princeton Public Library (Community Room - 1st Floor)
65 Witherspoon St.
Princeton, NJ 08542Told through the eyes of people struggling to stay in the city of Detroit despite its decline, this documentary features artistic and haunting images of a once grand city on the brink of dissolution. Refusing to abandon hope or resistance, the residents reflect the spirit of the Motor City, its battle to survive in postindustrial America and its trudge toward a radically different future. Along the way, the film reveals a correlation with the rest of middle-class America and the widening chasm of income inequality. Learn more about the film at detropiathefilm.comDirected and produced by Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady.

Since full implementation of the Site Remediation Reform Act ("SRRA") began in May 2012, parties conducting remediation and their Licensed Site Remediation Professionals ("LSRPs") have faced many new questions as the regulatory landscape continues to change. The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection ("NJDEP") continues to develop new policies, rules and guidance, the Site Remediation Professional Licensing Board has begun to publish draft rules regulating LSRPs, and, more than in recent years, our State courts have decided cases establishing the responsibility for and scope of remediation required at contaminated sites. Please join us  for a complimentary morning seminar addressing Hot Topics in Site Remediation, including:    
  • An update from the NJDEP Site Remediation Program, Assistant Commissioner David Sweeney
  • An update on the Licensing Board, Jorge Berkowitz, Langan Engineering and Environmental Services, Board Member
  • Emerging issues in the LSRP Program
  • Regulatory challenges facing remediating parties
  • Update on recent court decisions impacting contaminated sites
The attorneys in Riker Danzig's Environmental Practice Group, among the foremost practitioners on these topics, will discuss these subjects and provide ample time for interaction and questions.
