    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

    Green Infrastructure Stormwater Management Techniques

    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.
