Groundwater/Surface Water Interactions and Evaluating Impacts of Contaminated Groundwater Discharges: Tools, Ecological Risk, and Case Studies
Hosted by U.S. EPA - Region 5
LCD, Remediation and Reuse Branch

This workshop will provide a comprehensive overview of how to conceptualize, investigate, and evaluate groundwater/surface water (GW/SW) interactions to determine the impacts of contaminated groundwater discharges to surface water bodies. The advantages and disadvantages of the hydrogeological characterization tools will be discussed as will the need for targeted high resolution sampling to understand the complexities of the systems. Case studies will be presented to demonstrate how simple, cost-effective monitoring approaches have improved conceptual models of the sites, identified areas of greatest concern, and persuaded site owners to evaluate the transition zone and implement remedial actions.

Brewster Conant Jr., University of Waterloo
