CDM Smith Showcases Remedial Breakthroughs at AEHS
AMHERST, Mass. – An accomplished lineup of CDM Smith remediation scientists and engineers will present their cutting-edge research at this year’s Annual Conference on Soils, Sediments, Water and Energy. Topics include per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), innovative remedial technologies, sustainability and resilience.
The conference, held by the Association for the Environmental Health and Sciences Foundation at the University of Massachusetts Amherst each year, has quickly become a critical opportunity for a diverse group of stakeholders to gather and discuss the state of soil, sediment and water remediation. Event organizers expect stakeholders to include federal, state, and municipal regulatory officials, military personnel, industry leaders, environmental attorneys, scientists, engineers and consultants.
This is a unique opportunity for researchers and practitioners to share remedial strategies that can be immediately applied to active project sites. The CDM Smith schedule follows, with links to connect with some of our experts who are scheduled to present.

It’s important that project findings be supported by high quality data and that the decision-making process is aided by those results.
I push myself to dream bigger on how we, as environmental consultants, can help make changes.
As a team, we share our commitment to excellence. The people I work with exhibit initiative and integrity every day.
