Clean Water Ways

Event Date/Time

Jun 27, 2017

Description

The event will focus on improving oil and hazardous materials spill prevention and response on inland river systems. This unique event brings together State & Federal regulatory agencies, operating companies and the planning and response community. The inaugural event will take place in Louisville, KY, June 27-28. The event will be held on an annual basis rotating amongst several major river cities based on feedback from the attending audience.

Event Goals

To serve the spill response industry in prevention, preparedness and response by hosting a forum that facilitates an open exchange of ideas, case studies and best practices for stakeholders from government, environmental, emergency planning and response industries throughout maritime, facilities, rail and pipeline.  Further, to improve working relationships between industry and agencies prior to an incident occurring.

How CLEAN WATERWAYS Started

The Ohio River spans 15 states and is one of the heaviest industrial rivers in the country.  When a spill or hazardous event occurs, it doesn't stay in one place which means multiple State and Federal Agencies must get involved.  CLEAN WATERWAYS’ birth came about with a realization that there was no conference for the inland river systems that brought together all of the above-mentioned stakeholders.  Following in the footsteps of 25 successful years with CLEAN GULF we are excited about launching this companion event that will focus on improving oil and hazardous materials spill prevention and response on inland river systems.
