Topic: Permeable Reactive Barriers: Proper Characterization, Design, and Implementation

Speaker:  Mike Mazzerese, Senior Remediation Engineer, AST Environmental

Time: Tuesday, August 13, 11:30am-1pm

CEMS has received one (1) CLE for this presentation  

A common solution to limit petroleum hydrocarbon or chlorinated solvent contaminant migration across a site feature (property boundary, stream, etc.) is to install a permeable reactive barrier (PRB) perpendicular to groundwater flow.  As the contaminated groundwater flows through the PRB and contacts the remedial amendment, the groundwater concentrations and mass flux are reduced. This presentation will cover PRB characterization, design, and installation of activated carbon based injectate chemistries. Specifically, injection and trenching applications will be discussed. Several project summaries will also be presented.

LOCATION: The EPA Conference Center located on the 2nd floor of the EPA Region 8 Headquarters building at 1595 Wynkoop St. The EPA building may have changed since the last time you were there: To get to the EPA Security check in room, simply go up the Atrium stairs or catch the elevator (the room is on the 2nd floor, directly across from the big stairs, entrance door on the left. Since the Security area is smaller than it was before, and the EPA only has one (very sensitive) metal detector, it will take a while so we recommend giving yourself plenty of time.  Then please proceed to the Bison Bitterroot Room (where we regularly meet) to register with the CEMS representative.
