    Undercurrents in Site Remediation: Hydrogeology for LSRPs & Environmental Professionals

    8:00 am-3:30 pm
    2019.09.13
    Undercurrents in Site Remediation:
    Hydrogeology for LSRP’s & Environmental Professionals

    Introduction

    Groundwater – a fugacious, transient phase, moving unobserved and un-seeable through a three-dimensional network of cryptic subterranean passages, entraining, transporting, precipitating and re-entraining a dissolved load of mineral and chemical species, ultimately emerging from the Earth’s crust as surface water. Never actually seeing their object of study, hydrogeologists rely on indirect measurements to internally visualize groundwater flow and then communicate their visualizations using second-hand representations or simulations. Engaged thus in the unseen, it is small wonder that even geologists disagree with each other in their conclusions about groundwater, contaminant transport and remedial strategies.

    Faced with making decisions pertaining to the invisible world flowing beneath their feet, Site Remediation Professionals must synthesize hydrogeologists’ esoteric and indirect measurements into a reasoned, compliant, and ultimately defensible site remediation strategy. A seemingly hopeless endeavor, that objective is nonetheless achievable because, despite the uncertainties and competing hypotheses, hydrogeology is an objective science and LSRPs and Site Remediation Professionals are in the unique position to require geologists to support their conclusions/solutions with hard data, empowered to question every interpretation and conclusion along the way.

    Course Description

    This course will provide you with jargon-free explanations of the fundamental aspects of geology and hydrogeology relevant to site remediation decisions. The approach for all topics discussed is that decision makers must know the questions to ask and must be able to understand the responses. This assures that the technical persons making recommendations in support of the individual’s remedial decisions can defend those recommendations with hard data which will stand scrutiny and challenges!

    Green Infrastructure Stormwater Management Techniques

    8:00 am-4:00 pm
    2019.09.20

    Green Infrastructure Stormwater Management Techniques
    September 20, 2019 | 8:00AM-4:00PM
    Center for Environmental & Life Sciences (CELS) Building
    Montclair State University

    With the expanding regulatory push to decrease stormwater volume and improve stormwater quality, increasing attention is being given to the use of green infrastructure stormwater management techniques.  While growing popular, these techniques are often misapplied, improperly designed or inadequately maintained.  This innovative one-day class will explore those techniques being implemented on an increasingly frequent basis throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic.  The focus of this program deals with the proper selection, design, implementation and maintenance of green infrastructure techniques commonly used in urban and suburban settings. Multiple site examples will be provided.

    Additionally, with the interest of DEP in sustainable remediation, the impacts of capping contaminated sites may be mitigated by the innovative approaches discussed in this course. Therefore, LSRPs are encouraged to attend this program as they should be aware of the alternatives to “hard caps” in reducing stormwater runoff.

    Emerging Contaminants:
    Trends in Science, Regulations and Business Implications
    Location:  Bordentown, NJ

    Presented by Montclair State University, College of Science and Mathematics (CSAM), this one-day program will provide a comprehensive look at the latest developments regarding Emerging Contaminants. The program will also focus on these latest regulatory developments in New Jersey, Pennsylvania and at the federal level. Recent actions on both a state federal level are prompting data collection ahead of the development of necessary standards and regulations. What does this mean for remediating parties, water purveyors, business owners and what is the impact on environmental due diligence?   Attend this program to keep abreast of the latest developments in both the science and regulations.

    Regulatory Training in Underground Storage Tanks: NJDEP Approved Training

    8:00 am-4:00 pm
    2019.10.25

    Montclair State University Presents

    Regulatory Training in Underground Storage Tanks:
    NJDEP Approved Training

     

    If you are becoming UST certified for the first time or if your certification is in need of renewal, this class is for you! Stay current with New Jersey’s UST regulatory requirements and help your company and clients avoid costly penalties and fines.

    The New Jersey Underground Storage Tank (UST) regulations (NJAC 7:14B Subchapter 13 & 16) require that all personnel who install, close, test, and design corrosion protection systems for regulated USTs be certified as well as those subsurface evaluators (SSE) who perform services on unregulated USTs (UHOT).  All owners/operators of regulated USTs who are persons responsible for remediation must retain the services of a Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP) as of May 7, 2012.

    The NJDEP requires professionals who work on USTs to be trained, certified/recertified every three (3) years. This NJDEP approved course fulfills the NJDEP course requirement for regulatory training and must be taken within one year prior to renewal. Professional engineers and plumbing contractors, exempt from the certification examination, must attend the course within one year of certification.

    Who Should Attend:
    Individuals that need a working knowledge of the rules and regulations governing USTs, this includes tank owners and operators, UST/UHOT certified individuals, Licensed Site Remediation Professionals (LSRPs), consultants, engineers, contractors, health officers, geologists, soil scientists and attorneys.
