The Engineering Forum (EF), established in the late 1980s, is a group of engineers and scientists that supports the Superfund and RCRA programs in each of the ten EPA Regional Offices. As one of the EPA Technical Support Project’s (TSP) three technical forums, the EF is a medium for exchanging technical information regarding innovative site cleanup and characterization technologies. Monthly technical talks focus on site-specific engineering problems encountered, alternatives and solutions, and lessons learned. After each presentation, information regarding upcoming events and training are discussed and time for an Open Mic discussion is provided. If you are a Superfund, Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), Brownfields, state or federal environmental professional who is interested in solving technical issues, register for any technical talks listed below that interest you and join the discussion!
Presentations are specifically designed for EPA staff including RPMs, OSCs, Corrective Action Managers, Superfund and Technology Liaisons, Chemists, Biologists, Physical Scientists, and Engineers from within EPA regions, program offices, laboratory system, and headquarters personnel as well as environmental professionals from state agencies, tribes, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, U.S. Dept. of Energy, and other federal agencies of all experience levels. THIS TRAINING IS NOT OPEN TO ACADEMIA, CONTRACTORS, CONSULTANTS OR OTHER PRIVATE ENTITIES.
We will try to meet any special accommodations necessary for our participants as possible if given a minimum of two weeks notice. You will be prompted to indicate if you need any special accommodations upon registering for these events.
*This training is offered free of charge to all registrants who are confirmed to attend. One CLP will be issued for each session attended when you register and log on with the registration link provided to enable your attendance to be confirmed.*
Dr. J.P. Brandenburg of Haley and Aldrich, Inc. will present his team's work on ESTCP Project ER21-5226. Using three DoD site case studies, he will illustrate how modern software tools and advanced characterization techniques like geophysics and Environmental Sequence Stratigraphy (ESS) can provide detailed maps and cross sections which form a key element of conceptual site models. More information on ESTCP Project ER21-5226 Procedure for Generating Optimized Numerical Models from the new generation of advanced Geologic Site Conceptual Models developed using ESS can be found at the following link: https://www.serdp-estcp.org/projects/details/3b222eba-f922-4cc9-9c1e-c6f6701afdd3/er21-5226-project-overview. Dr. J.P. Brandenburg's no-cost e-book, Geologic frameworks for groundwater flow models, provides techniques that groundwater modelers can use to numerically represent physical subsurface geology and is available at the following link: https://gw-project.org/books/geologic-frameworks-for-groundwater-flow-models/
