What’s New in Groundwater
Managing groundwater requires rigour to quantify impacts and lateral thinking when developing a remediation strategy.
When detecting impacts, how can you be assured that samples are representative of the aquifer? The current method to analyse dissolved methane in groundwater is limited as methane solubility is affected by pressure changes. The sample collected at surface is not always reflective of the concentration within the aquifer.
When developing remediation strategies, how do you determine the most appropriate method? And what additional remediation strategies should you consider?
Most development projects involves consideration of erosion and sediment control to ensure protection of the environment. Good erosion and sediment control also provides a community perception that best practice is being performed and the environment is being adequately protected during the project and beyond.
This forum will explored the various facets of erosion and sediment control and include discussion on:
Environmental best practice environmental – minimising impacts including uncontrolled releases to the surrounding environment;
Social best practice – meeting societal perceptions and expectations; and
Financial vs Technical best practice – achieving value for money.
The speakers discussed their experience regarding the above aspects of erosion and sediment control good, better and best practice with regard to relevant local and national case studies.
