Groundwater in Fractured Bedrock

Event Date:

Event State: 
New Jersey

This one-day course focuses on practical aspects of groundwater in the fractured sedimentary bedrock of the Newark Group (Brunswick Aquifer), where thousands of sites have been impacted by industrial contaminants. Remedial activities at such sites are usually impaired by oversimplified notions regarding groundwater flow and contaminant migration, as well as by the use of inadequate hydrogeologic characterization methods.

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.
