    LSRP Obligations, Requirements & Use of Professional Judgment

    8:30 am-4:00 pm
    2020.02.19
    EcoComplex-Bordentown, NJ
    1200 Florence-Columbus Road, Bordentown, NJ 08505

    The Site Remediation Reform Act law allows for LSRP to issue variances from the Technical Requirements for Site Remediation and also allows the LSRP to employ alternatives to those detailed in Department Technical Guidance. This approach allows greater flexibility in determining how sites are investigated and remediated.  However, when utilizing their professional judgment, it is incumbent on the LSRP to explain the validity of using variances or alternatives.

    Undercurrents in Site Remediation: Hydrogeology for LSRPs & Environmental Professionals

    8:00 am-3:30 pm
    2020.03.03
    EcoComplex-Bordentown, NJ
    1200 Florence-Columbus Road, Bordentown, NJ 08505

    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!

    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.

    New Course!!! The Quantitative Conceptual Site Model Approach: Maximizing the Utility of Your CSM

    8:30 am-12:30 pm
    2020.03.17
    EcoComplex-Bordentown, NJ
    1200 Florence-Columbus Road, Bordentown, NJ 08505

    Course Description:

    This half-day workshop is designed to take environmental professionals beyond the traditional qualitative Conceptual Site Model (CSM) by adding an overlay of quantitative information that sharpens decisions and provides documented support that can be important to an LSRP’s, or other environmental professional’s, practice.

    The Quantitative Conceptual Model (QCSM) approach, which involves the merging of quantitative analysis results with the framework of a sound site conceptual model, provides a “functional” version of the CSM that can be used to guide investigations, assist in remedial design, and/or evaluate the effectiveness of a remedy, providing a well-documented, scientifically-based tool for sound decision making.

    Instructors will present a detailed discussion of the QCSM approach, and will identify a series of quantitative analysis tools and techniques that can be applied in any project, ranging from simple calculations, to more complex analyses, including spatial data analysis methods, 3-D Data visualization techniques, and groundwater flow and contaminant transport analyses that can range from “back of the envelope” calculations to more complex computer models. Additionally, a series of practical applications and case studies will be presented, and attendees will receive copies of select spreadsheet calculators and modeling software (along with simple examples to work through independently) that can be utilized to add a quantitative component to their CSMs.

    Investigating and Remediating Chlorinated Solvent Contaminated Sites

    8:00 am-4:00 pm
    2020.04.17

    Course Description:

    One of the most difficult sites that environmental professionals must deal with are sites which are contaminated with chlorinated solvents. Chlorinated solvents were compounds that worked extremely well in many industrial and commercial operations. Two of the prime uses of chlorinated solvents were Tetrachloroethene (PCE) used most commonly as a dry-cleaning solvent and Trichloroethene (TCE), used in a plethora of commercial operations ranging from industrial vapor degreasers to spray cleaner in local gasoline stations, to waterproofing shoe sprays.

    Remediation may also be complex and may involve several phases rather than the selection of a sole methodology. Successful remediation will depend on effective delineation of the source or sources, the physio-chemical composition of the soil or water and the biological effectiveness of degradation, if any.

    This course is designed to familiarize attendees with the various problems caused by chlorinated solvents: the difficulties encountered in attempting to delineate contaminated soil and water; and the process by which one may select a method or methods to successfully remediate chlorinated solvent contaminated sites.
