Who should attend:
This module will target professionals within the contaminated land industry with between 1 and 4 years’ experience.
The course will show environmental scientists how to assess and interrogate their physical and chemical groundwater data to strengthen conceptual site models, particularly with respect to contaminant plume stability, remediation outcomes, and reaching site closure.
Dr Tamie Weaver: Tamie is a Technical Fellow and Partner within ERM based in Melbourne. She has more than 30 years’ experience as a hydrogeologist and has provided hydrogeological advice and technical leadership in site investigations involving the assessment of fate and transport of; metals, radionuclides and salinity in groundwater at proposed, current and closed mine sites, and petroleum hydrocarbons, chlorinated solvents, metals and nutrients in groundwater at operating and closed mine sites, power stations and industrial facilities. For over a decade Tamie was a lecturer at the University of Melbourne, teaching undergraduate, postgraduate and professional short courses in hydrogeology, hydrogeochemistry, and contaminant behaviour.
Sarah Sawyer: Sarah is a principal hydrogeologist at Arcadis based in Melbourne and has 16 years’ experience as a hydrogeologist within the consulting industry. Sarah has experience in development of conceptual site models for a range of contaminants including petroleum hydrocarbons, chlorinated hydrocarbons, pesticides and metals in a variety of settings including chemical manufacturing facilities, refineries, fuel storage facilities, pipelines and metal plating facilities. Sarah also has experience with field hydrogeological testing including pumping tests, slug testing and analysis of results.
