Hunter JO would like to invite all Council staff involved in contaminated land management to join us for our Regional Forum on problem contaminants – asbestos and PFAS. This will be a great opportunity to catch up with our colleagues in-person, to hear from regulatory and technical experts on asbestos and PFAS, and to share interesting case studies. We’ll also have two interactive panel sessions so please come ready with your questions.
There’s plenty of free parking at the stadium and food will be provided. We know a few of you might have a longer drive into Newcastle so presentations will commence from 9:30am. however, you’re welcome to arrive from 8:30am to catch up over some breakfast/morning tea.
