Where Is The Groundwater Contamination Going?

The theme of the 2013 Solinst Symposium was “High Resolution, Depth-Discrete Groundwater Monitoring – Benefits and Importance”. A common topic of discussion was the need for high resolution, depth-discrete data sets in order to better characterize and develop conceptual models for contaminated sites. Continue Reading »

The Effects Of Heterogeneity & Delivery Methods On Remediation

To begin his presentation, Rick discussed the current trends in groundwater remediation. Over the past decade, in situ methods have greatly increased in popularity. Although the use of these approaches is growing, Rick pointed out some limitations. Geological heterogeneity is a limitation to determining hydrogeological aspects of a contaminated site, and how a reagent will… Continue Reading »

Assessment Of Groundwater Velocity Measurements With PVPs

Rick Devlin kicked-off the Symposium with a presentation that stressed the importance of groundwater velocity measurements, especially for contaminant hydrogeology. Through case study examples, Rick showed that measuring velocity is essential in determining the fate and transport of contaminants, which in turn, helps focus remediation efforts in the right direction. Traditional velocity estimates are based… Continue Reading »
