About the Program
The seminar was designed to offer attendees a focused exploration of lessons learned over the past 30 years of MTCA and a look at where MTCA is heading in the next 30 years, considering the successes, challenges, and opportunities for contaminated site cleanups in Washington State. Structured around three panels, the half-day program provided attendees with perspectives from key players involved in the development and implementation of MTCA and insights from the stakeholders on the cutting edge of environmental cleanups under the state law.
