2021 G360 Institute Newsletter is Here!

As an early part of our UN World Water Day celebration, we are very happy to share with you our G³⁶⁰ Institute Newsletter, which highlights our 2020 projects involving both local and international activities focused on groundwater resource protection and remediation. Our multi-disciplinary field-focused efforts in collaboration with site owners, groundwater technology, service companies, and government sponsors truly set us apart. We appreciate everyone’s contributions, from funding to on-the-ground efforts using expert knowledge to collect novel datasets and their interpretations. While COVID-19 and social distancing rules required us to adjust our field activities and to life in a virtual environment,  I am happy to report the highest attendance ever in our annual meeting history with over 200 attendees at our June Consortium in 2020!

The G³⁶⁰ Institute for Groundwater Research is proud to share our 2021 newsletter! Click here to learn about our newest team members, awards, graduations, publications and our many projects and successes over the past year.

On-Demand Webinar: Progressive Remediation Strategies: A Next-Generation Approach to Remediating Complex Sites

Now Available On Demand
Progressive Remediation Strategies: A Next-Generation Approach to Remediating Complex Sites

We invite you to watch our webinar on PROGRESS – an approach to remediating complex sites developed through the collaboration of Burns & McDonnell with the G360 Institute for Groundwater Research, now available on demand.

Complex site remediation can be costly and difficult if the existing conceptual site model (CSM) fails to account for the processes determining the persistence and behavior of groundwater contaminants. This webinar presents PROGRESS, an approach that employs a process-based CSM that accurately incorporates and quantifies relevant subsurface processes to improve remedy selection, design, implementation and optimization.

This on demand webinar also introduces the digital site management tool, an application used to build a process-based CSM while providing a higher level of CSM efficiency and utility. Through case studies, presenters demonstrate the value of the PROGRESS approach and share information about how PROGRESS supports important remediation decision-making that directly impacts performance, cost and schedule.
