This course will be presented by Dr Tamie Weaver and Dana Windle from ERM. Tamie will provide insights based on over 30 years of practical hydrogeological experience working in a range of groundwater environments. Dana Windle is Technical Director of Hydrogeology at ERM and will also contribute her experience to the presentation.
The course will help you get the best out of your groundwater data by providing you with practical techniques for making sense of current and historical groundwater data.
This course will go beyond simple trend analysis for individual compounds. It will consider how the data as a whole can be used in areas such as: improving interpretation of site conditions, optimising remediation strategies and potentially reducing duration of post-remediation monitoring to reach site closure.

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. Her focus is on the assessment of fate and transport of organic and inorganic contaminants 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.
Dana Windle: Dana is a Technical Director of Hydrogeology within ERM based in Victoria. She has more than 13 years’ experience as a hydrogeologist, from conducting onsite investigations through to higher level conceptualisations and technical interpretations. Dana’s passion is using the range of available data, such as site history, soil concentrations, geology, groundwater elevations, groundwater quality (field and lab) and other hydrogeological information, to develop a combined story or conceptual model. Her experience ranges from large and complex mining or chemical manufacturing sites, through to smaller service stations, and everything in between. She has worked with a variety of contaminants, including inorganics, nutrients, metals, petroleum hydrocarbons, chlorinated hydrocarbons and PFAS.
