Investigation of Chlorinated Hydrocarbon Contamination and Groundwater Plumes

Ease into 2021 with a nice primer on where we have come from and where things are at with these tricky contaminants.  Although in recent years there has been an increasing focus on many emerging contaminants of concern, chlorinated hydrocarbons have been and will remain one of the most common groundwater contaminants of concern.  This presentation will take a quick retrospective look at the earliest recognition of these tricky contaminants and how the contaminated land industry and regulators came to realise these contaminants couldn’t simply be remediated using conventional engineering approaches. Over the past 10-20 years, many new technologies and approaches have become available for characterising subsurface chlorinated hydrocarbon impacts.  The presentation will take a brief look at some of these approaches, how they can help in developing a better overall conceptual site model, and lead to smarter decisions on remediation and management strategies for these tricky contaminants.           


Steve Kirsanovs is an accredited contaminated sites auditor in Victoria, Western Australia, and South Australia. He has a Bachelor of Civil Engineering from the University of Melbourne, a Masters of Engineering Science from the University of New South Wales, specialising in contaminant hydrogeology. Originally from Victoria, he has been based on Adelaide since the late 1990s.
