On April 7, 2015 the Israeli Institute for Energy and Environment hosted a conference on contaminated soil and groundwater.  During the conference representatives from the Israel Ministry for the Protection of Environment (MPoE) and the Israel Water Authority discussed the various ways in which contaminated soil and groundwater can be treated and the methods to obtain closure of these sites.  For example, the MPoE requires that at least 80% of the soil contamination is removed by an insitu remediation system prior to closure and requires that each year, progress must be shown that remediation will be completed in a period of less than 5 years. In addition, the MPoE presented  the Israel Risk Based Corrective Action (IRBCA) guidelines which were published in 2014 by the Ministry.

Other presentations included the Israeli Laboratory Accreditation Authority which discussed updates to the certification process for soil sampling. Further issues discussed in details included soil contamination issues, management of national project and examples of fuel contaminated groundwater treatment.
