Additional Information:

The course is intended for geologists, hydrogeologists, environmental professionals, licensed site remediation professionals (LSRPs), remediation engineers, regulators, and corporate site managers responsible for the investigation and remediation of complex bedrock sites. Participants will have an opportunity to improve their understanding of the hydrogeologic framework best used to represent sedimentary bedrock sites.

Program Topics

  • Dominant role of certain bedding fractures in sedimentary bedrock and harmful consequences of using inadequate conceptual models of groundwater flow
  • Fracture flow basics and differences with porous media
  • Plume delineation and CEA determination at fractured bedrock sites
  • NJDEP's technical guidance document on groundwater investigation in fractured bedrock
  • How to conduct remedial investigations and groundwater cleanups at DNAPL and LNAPL Sites
  • Various conceptual flow models applied for groundwater in bedrock, and how their use influences apparent groundwater flow direction, velocities, plume delineation and remediation outcomes at contaminated bedrock sites
  • And much more!
