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.
The International Water Resources Association’s IWRA Online Conference was held virtually from October 28-30th, 2020 with the aim to provide a meeting place to share experiences, promote discussion, and to present new knowledge, research results and new developments in the field of water sciences around the world.
In a session on “Climate Change Effects on Groundwater Resilience (Pollution & Remediation)”, keynote speakers Dr. John Cherry and Dr. Beth Parker presented the talk titled, “Passive approaches for groundwater remediation are most essential in the context of climate change”, now available free online for viewers via the YouTube Link and the IWRA Online Conference site.
