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?
This forum did focus on:
Advancements in analytical techniques to ensure appropriateness of results
Groundwater remediation methods that may not be conventional including solar aerobic thermal treatment, phyto-remediaiton and gene sequencing analysis
