Crude Move Symposium: Oil Transportation Infrastructure, Economics, Risk, Hazards and Lessons Learned

U.S. and Canadian government, industry, academic and NGO stakeholders are invited to the first-of-its-kind crude oil movement meeting for the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin and other critical northern watersheds including Lake Champlain and the Hudson River.

Hosted by the Sea Grant Network, Great Lakes Commission and International Joint Commission, this meeting will provide an opportunity to increase our understanding on the complexity of crude oil movement in these important northern basins. Topics will include regional transportation, economics, hazards and risk, emergency response and lessons learned from the Gulf of Mexico.

A final agenda is available here.
