Richard Britton, P.G., LSRP, Senior Vice President at Whitman, will be instructing the annual “Groundwater in Fractured Bedrock” course at Rutgers University on Tuesday, March 28th, 2017. This one day environmental education course focuses on using the correct conceptual site model to investigate the fractured sedimentary bedrock of the Newark Group (Brunswick Aquifer), where thousands of sites have been impacted by industrial contaminants.
The environmental education course is intended for geologists, hydrogeologists, environmental professionals, licensed site remediation professionals (LSRPs), remediation engineers, regulators and corporate site managers responsible for the investigation and remediation of complex bedrock sites.
Participants in the environmental education course will have an opportunity to improve their understanding of the Leaky Multi-unit Aquifer System (LMAS), the hydrogeologic framework best used to represent the sedimentary bedrock sites of Newark Basin.
