Packer Tests Using Low Pressure Pneumatic Packers

Packer Tests & Hydrogeological Characterization Estimating aquifer properties, such as hydraulic conductivity (K) and permeability is an essential part of site characterization and creating accurate conceptual site models during site investigations. The data gained through aquifer characterizations help to plan further monitoring programs and remediation efforts. Packer Tests are a great way to obtain these… Continue Reading »

High Resolution Multi-level Monitoring For Bedrock Aquifers

Beth Parker provided attendees with a glimpse of the extensive research she has been spearheading for the past 20 years. Her work is focused on developing the “Discrete Fracture Network (DFN) Field Approach for Investigating Contaminated Sites in Fractured Sedimentary Rock”. Understanding how groundwater flows and chemicals migrate in these networks requires a unique approach… Continue Reading »

Regional Scale Groundwater Understanding: The Collection, Management And Analysis Of Data For Conceptual And Numerical Model Development, Application And Testing

Attendees enjoyed the presentation by Steve Holysh and Rick Gerber of the Oak Ridges Moraine Coalition. They presented work being done for the Region’s unique groundwater management program. Rapid growth and expansion on the Moraine triggered the program into action about 20 years ago, to more fully understand the extent, quality and movement of the… Continue Reading »

Site Characterization: Important To Remediation Design

Richard Jackson delivered a very interesting presentation on the need for accurate and complete site conceptual models when dealing with contaminated sites. Richard used four unique case studies to illustrate how important it is to “get it right”. Getting the model right, allows the right decisions to be made – especially when it comes to… Continue Reading »
