In Situ Remediation of Low Permeability Media (Clay & Fractured Rock)

2.0 PDHs 

The remediation of sites with either clay or fractured bedrock are two of the greatest challenges that we face in the environmental industry today. It is incredibly difficult to find the source zone to begin treatment and then comes the task of selecting a technology that can address the variability in soil, bedrock fractures or groundwater flow that a contaminated site can pose. In this class, Lowell Kessel and Gord Guest will lay out the options available in the industry that will allow you to characterize and to remediate your site in a cost and time effective manner.
